Lena Leonhardt is a German Writer & Director with a broad work spectrum ranging from independent European co-productions for cinema and television to documentary series for international streaming platforms. Her aim is to explore the facets and nuances of life in her stories and to extract the universal from the exemplary. This approach combined with her open and curious view of the world allow her not to see cinematic genres as borders, but rather as creative playing fields. Even though she doesn’t shy away from confronting human abysses or existential questions, her films show humor and empathy towards the absurdities of life.
