    Rosa Hannah Ziegler, born in 1982, studied directing at the Cologne Academy of Media Arts (Kunsthochschule für audiovisuelle Medien Köln). During this time, she interned with director Andreas Dresen. Her documentary, “Cigaretta mon Amour – Portrait of My Father”, garnered much attention and was awarded the Deutscher Kurzfilmpreis in Gold (German Short Film Award in Gold).
