Biography

Frieder Schlaich is a German producer and director. After studying Visual Communication at the Academy of Fine Arts in Hamburg, his debut film "Halfmoon", based on writings by Paul Bowles, received numerous awards and international critical acclaim. His subsequent film "Otomo", based on the true story of an African immigrant in Stuttgart, won Best Film at Bergano and the Diversity in Spirit Award at Vancouver in 2000.

Since then he has produced films by such diverse artists as Christoph Schlingensief ("The African Twin Towers", with Patti Smith, among others) and Werner Schroeter (international co-production "Nuit de Chien"), Heinz Emigholz ("Goff in the Desert", "Parabeton"), Irene von Alberti ("Stadt als Beute", "Tangerine"), Cynthia Beatt ("The Invisible Frame", starring Tilda Swinton), Elfi Mikesch ("Mondo Lux") and Omer Fast ("Continuity"), among others.
