The hunger for meat is growing in our society. only a very few people will be concerned with the question of where it actually comes from. BERTA is an observation, an attempt to aestheticize something supposedly cruel – in 16mm film.
Julius Dommer, born and raised in Schleswig-Holstein, started studying at the Cologne Media Arts Academy in 2012. Dommer’s work focuses on documentary and short films. His BERTA won the jury prize at the Dresdener Schmalfilmtage this year and came in third place in the short film competition at Open Eyes Film Festival in Marburg.
