Two Filmmakers at Home in Berlin, Child Included

August 23, 2012

A visit with Vivien Weyrauch and Fabian Röttger (and one-year-old Faye), courtesy of the editors of Freunde von Freunden, who dropped in to sip tea and eat oatmeal cookies with the filmmaker couple.

Weyrauch and Röttger (together they write A Nice Idea Everyday) are known for their gloomy and futuristic videos, but their tiny, antique-dotted flat in Berlin could not be more different. Weyrauch, originally from Frankfurt, and Röttger, from Würzburg, were drawn to the hip neighborhood of Bergmannkiez and had their daughter Faye not too long after moving. Drawing inspiration from their love of vintage video games and filmmakers like Antonioni, Lynch, Fellini, and Gavras, the couple created a home featuring a mix of antiques and electronics (records, art books, laptops, and cameras).

N.B.: Visit Freunde von Freunden to see more; for another FvF feature, go to Berlin Creatives at Home.
