Jens Carl Ehlers
He is an all-rounder in the film world. He has realised internationally acclaimed films both for television and the big screen as a screenplay writer, a director and a producer. His Science fiction film FLUGFIEBER after a novel of Belenkin was the first demonstration of his multifaceted talent. He was involved with the film adaptation MOSCOW – PETUSCHKI both as screenplay author and as director.
Two years later he directed another production for the Franco-German broadcasting company Arte – a German-Polish television film entitled REPUBLIC OF DREAMS. The film was the highlight of Jewish Film Festival in San Francisco and at many other festivals.
He likes “old school” narrative forms, and his films show the value he places on authentic personalities. So film projects with a high element of entertainment are not alien to him either – as he showed in coming up with the idea and the screenplay for the TV series GEGEN DEN WIND Against the Wind. Perhaps no other German program has been ever been so successful in his category.
He is now developing in-house projects for the company and structuring the film financing.
