about us

Film-makers. Travellers. Storytellers.
"We, that is Anna and Michael, two modern nomads who will found their independent production company for documentary films in the hibernation of the pandemic in early 2021. We want to share with you the hundreds of hours of film material that we have collected on our journeys around the world. With a camera in our backpack we documented our encounters with people who have never lost touch with nature: people from all over the world became our teachers and reminded us of where we come from.
Just as the light of a match flame illuminates the world for a brief moment, light also breaks through our camera lens and gives us deep insights into previously unknown worlds. In our snapshots, we always illuminate every microcosm from our very personal perspective and let you participate in our rediscovery of simplicity."

Anna Baranowski

Artist. Film-maker. Storyteller.
Anna Baranowski, born in Bytom (Poland) in 1983, is a contemporary artist and filmmaker from Leipzig. In 2012 she received her diploma in media arts with distinction at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig. After completing her studies, she received numerous artist residencies, grants, such as the working scholarship from the 'Kunstfonds Bonn' Foundation in 2018, and took part in numerous exhibitions in Germany and abroad. Her observations of strange, but also familiar worlds are reflected in her art works and reflect social phenomena of our time. Parallel to her artistic work, she works as a camerawoman and editor on documentaries for cinema and TV (e.g. ARTE , ZDF).
After 6 experimental short films of her own, Namaste Corona is her debut as a director for a 90-minute documentary.

Michael Moritz

Traveller. Film-maker. Storyteller.
Michael Moritz, born in the Palatinate in 1989, worked for the business sector for over 10 years. His time as a banker was followed by a bachelor's and master's degree in economics related to the tourism industry. Most recently he worked as a product manager for a hiking tour operator and taught part-time as a lecturer at the University of Economics and Technology in Saarbrücken. At the beginning of 2019, the critic of turbo-capitalism ended his career in order to put his heart projects in the centre of his life. The trained nature educator banished stress from his life and since then has been travelling slowly around the world with a camera in his luggage. After his participation as a protagonist in the ARTE documentary “ The Way of St James ” (2019), he is now working with Anna Baranowski on his first own documentary.
