The Hollywood Reporter:
„If Wes Anderson. adapted a German Comic book filled with talking animals and then cast amateur actors – many of them recent refugees – to play the leading role, the result might. look something like Patrick Merz and Henning Wötzel-Herber's Adamstown. Oh, and it's a musical, too. “
Henning Wötzel-Herber is full time civic educator at ABC Bildungs- und Tagungszentrum, a small NGO in the middle of nowhere in Northern Germany. Usually in charge of civic and media education Patrick Merz encouraged him to go beyond workshops and take intercultural encounters to a new level. Adamstown was his debut as a director (in. partnership with Patrick). Previously he produces some of their common work.
