Copilot :

"A captivating political love story, where all that is good and pure lies in precarious tension with a world gone mad."

Political Drama (2021)

Copilot depicts the semi-imagined life of United-93 highjacker Ziad Jarrah. Portrayed with heaps of both warmth and unease by Roger Azar.

We encounter a young Jarrah in mid-1990s Hamburg and watch as he radicalises over the next five years to 2001.

Despite his presence (and absence) weighing heavily on the film, it is not chiefly about him ; Copilot is about the woman to whom he gives that pet name, 'co-pilot'.

Curveball :

"CURVEBALL tells the grotesque, at times even surreal, true story of how the Iraq war was started based on nothing but fake intelligence and the involvement of the German government / German secret service."

Crime / Historical Drama : (2020)

Although he already has searched Iraq unsuccessfully for weapons of mass destruction as a member of a UN mission, German bio-weapons expert Arndt Wolf is still obsessed with the idea that Saddam Hussein is hiding something.

Nobody around him is interested in this topic any more. This changes abruptly when an Iraqi asylum seeker claims to have been involved in the manufacture of chemical weapons.

The German Federal Intelligence Service summons Dr. Wolf to ascertain the legitimacy of the claims made by the informant, who has been given the code name “Curveball”.
