We talk to Dominik Graf about his ideas for a better world.
Dominik Graf is an internationally-renowned German film and TV director. He has won 10 Grimme prizes, making him the most frequent recipient of that award.
Graf’s work is characterised by its unusual willingness to experiment. He is influenced by US film genres and also French improvisation and Dogma-style film, from which he takes the typical fragmented narrative. After the success of “Der Felsen” (The Cliff, 2002), this year’s historical film “Die geliebten Schwestern” (The Beloved Sisters, about the life of German writer Friedrich Schiller) was in the running at this year’s Berlinale.
Graf has one daughter with his partner, director and Oscar winner Caroline Link (Nowhere in Africa).
