Born in Frankfurt am Main in 1992, Alexander Conrads has realised his own film projects since 2005. He describes the evolution of his work in the following manner: “I love films – and not just since yesterday. When I was 13 I got my first video camera for my birthday, and ever since there are few things that make me happier than the possibility to tell stories, move people and entertain them with films. After my A levels, I moved to Mainz in 2011, where I studied film and audio-visual publishing, receiving my bachelors in 2015.” With his short film SARDINIEN, he won the German Youth Film Award in 2018. LÖWIN (2019) was shot in Wiesbaden and features performers from the city’s “Scaramouche” acting school.
