The Forest Maker is the portrait of a remarkable man whose life’s work was honored with the so-called alternative Nobel.

Volker Schlöndorff was born 1939 in Wiesbaden. In 1956 he traveled to France as part of a student exchange and remained in France where he received his Baccalauréat. In Paris he studied law and he met Louis Malle. He also worked as an assistant for Ludwig Berger, Louis Malle, Jean-Pierre Melville and Alain Resnais. 1963-1964 he wrote his first screenplay Der Junge Törless for which he received a scholarship that enabled him to realize the project. The film won several awards and is considered the first international success of the new German film. In 1969, Schlöndorff founded production company Hallelujah-Film GmbH. In 1975, Schlöndorff co-directed with Margarethe von Trotta the film The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum. His breakthrough on the world stage comes with the film adaptation of Günter Grass’s novel “Tin Drum”. Film The Tin Drum (1979) won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. The Forest Maker (2022) is Schlöndorff’s documentary debut.
