Director Statement

In 2009, I had the chance to visit China as a member of the German Documentaries delegation at GZ Doc, to represent also my company and my film Shortcut to Justice. We were warmly welcomed and brought to a very fancy, luxurious hotel, big as a Pharao's tomb. But the Communist party had taken over the formerly independent festival and was now controlling everything.
