about brandfilme.org

 "I think that this administrative, conservative and profit-oriented thinking basically destroys all areas of life. There are certainly moments when you can fit into existing orders without loss, but there are also moments when you have to clearly reject it. We should definitely preserve this freedom. But if one gives it up, then one should not make films, because then one actually has nothing to say".
Ulrike Ottinger, workshop talk in Filmbulletin 4/96
brandfilme.org was founded by me, Susanne Fasbender, as a production label for artistic and freely financed films and videos simultaneously with the release of the film trilogy BRAND (Fire). In varying collaboration with other authors, artists or activists, but also with people who are interested in the films because of their own activities, who watch and distribute the films themselves, documentary essayistic works are created.
