Jemand und Niemand

A Film by the JEMAND UND NIEMAND Team

Synopsis

SOMEBODY AND NOBODY.
Up on the Horse Pass, in the mist-shrouded mountains, a few cowboys are raided by the men of a notorious bandit named Black Wolf. The reckless Aaron ballsy routs the robbers – but the same night he pays for it with his life. His quiet, reserved brother Jonah swears revenge. It is his chance to step out of his brother’s shadow and finally show his manfulness to his father. But the Black Wolf seems to be one size too big…
A family drama told as a western, a chamber play outside in the rough wilderness.

    SOMEBODY AND NOBODY is the result of the team work of some filmmakers from the circles around the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. Initiator of the project was the author Belo Schwarz, who was inspired by the song "Buenas Tardes Amigo" by Ween. Then, one by one, the other team members joined: Joscha Douma, Moritz Helmes, Rüdiger Heinze, Ina Blus, Brigitte Dithard, Fabian Gamper, Hannes Höhn, Mona Otterbach, etc., all of whom were enthusiastic about the idea of shooting a western. The final movie results - as with any film - from the creative interaction of all participants.
