Life’s all about two things: firstly, being loved, and secondly not being
alone. But what happens when people aren’t enough, or when they’re too much? GELIEBT (BE LOVED) is not a film about the pros and cons of emotional and sexual relationships with animals but a film about the relationship between humans and animals, poised somewhere between love and dependence.


Born in Karl-Marx-Stadt, East Germany in 1984, he made short films in the Chemnitz Film Workshop and then began studying film and television directing at the University of Film and Television ‘Konrad Wolf’ in Potsdam in 2008. His films have screened at the Berlinale several times: GELIEBT in Berlinale Shorts in 2010, ZUCHT UND ORDNUNG in the Panorama and CRAZY DENNIS TIGER in  Generation 14plus in 2012. In 2014, he was a member of the Generation 14plus International Jury. HAFTANLAGE 4614 is the second in a four-part documentary series about games involving prison role play.
