The New City – Das bunte Dresden

A Film by Javier Sobremazas

Synopsis

THE NEW CITY – THE OTHER SIDE OF DRESDEN

In the last few years, Dresden (Germany) has got the reputation of a right wing extremists and conservative city, where PEGIDA demonstrates every Monday evening and refugees and foreigners feel sometimes “not welcome”. But there is another Dresden. The colourful one.

    Javier Sobremazas

    Javier studied I.T. and never considered filmmaking as a job until he started working as a hardware engineer at the BBC in England. There he met many film and TV professionals who open his eyes to what before it was just a hobby. Still in England, he started making music videos for local bands for free and soon returned to Spain as a local film studio offered
    him a job. There he worked as cameraman, DoP and editor in many projects and in 2014 released his first documentary: Midnight Sun, a music road trip filmed in Finland, Norway and Sweden. After that he moved to Germany and now works as freelance filmmaker in Dresden.
