    Kai Sitter

    Filmmaker Kai Sitter (born in Munich, 1987) studied art history, now doing a master’s degree in film and theatre sciences in Munich. At the age of 12, Kai began experimenting with his camcorder, the video-recorder being his first editing workingplace. Over the years Kai did work experience at TV, theatre and film productions and in an art gallery. For half a year he ran an improvisation workshop and started a small marketing firm for image-films, commercials and event clips. In 2012 he was awarded the Bavarian Youth Video Award for Best Script for his short film „clash“, a film that takes up the clichés of a multicultural society in a sensitive way. Two further short films ("Üç" and "In the Gallery") deal with the same subject of being a stranger, of feeling different. Both were presented at the Cannes Filmfestival Short Film Corner. Kai’s documentary on young Israeli-Arabs in Israel, “Marhaba, Shalom“ and on youth culture in Turkey, “Her sey acik – Everything is open“, realized together with film-maker Michael Hehl, were shown in cinemas – as were some others of his short films.
