MICHEL AUDER – THE FIRST INFLUENCER
French artist Michel Auder was an influencer avant la lettre – long before social media even existed. He anticipated how we use video today to document our daily lives half a century ago. Because he filmed his everyday life around the clock. What does permanent self-dramatization do to a life – and to one’s own identity?
THE RAID ON REMBRANDT.
Even as a six-year-old, American Thomas Kaplan dreamed of owning a Rembrandt. Today, he owns 19 works by the artist – more than anyone else on this planet. He has never lived with the works – but lends them permanently all over the world. Because Rembrandt, he is convinced, belongs to all of us. For Kaplan, Rembrandt is the most important artist of all time. The film tells the story of an unusual passion for art and reveals how we too can succeed in owning a Rembrandt.

CARLO MOLLINO. THE LAST UNIVERSAL GENIUS.
Carlo Mollino was the last universal genius. Everything the architect, designer, photographer, aerobatic racing driver and dandy touched, he pushed to the highest quality. Nevertheless, he fell into oblivion after his death. Yet he left behind an eclectic and eccentric life’s work that opens the door to a unique world. Written and directed by Frauke Schlieckau
