THE TRANSFORMATION

Die Verwandlung
The documentary film deals with the "truthfulness" of the acting profession.

Almost every day, actors and actresses experience drama, the extent to which we have no idea. We experience them in their roles when they play seducers, heroes, villains, or failures. We know little about the people behind the roles, unless we are given a distorted picture by the tabloid media. Actors live a profession that exposes them to the public in a special way. Their profession is both a curse and a blessing, exposing personal complexes, touching on vanities, and fomenting narcissism.

With Thomas Arnold, Muriel Baumeister, Paul Faßnacht, Martin Feifel, Claus Theo Gärtner, Jürgen Heinrich, Aleksandar Jovanowic, Joachim Kerzel, Gro Swantje Kohlhof, Ulrike Krumbiegel, Manfred Lehmann, Katrin Pollitt, Alexander Scheer, Jörg Schüttauf and Jevgenij Sitochin.
