This year I’m especially excited to attend Berlinale & EFM as I have quite a few exciting projects to present!
As many people have been asking, what I have been up to, here is a quick overview:
1. My first feature film “Hot Scary Summer”
The project is still in the early stages, but I have finished the script of my first feature film, a sci-film drama set in a dystopian world, dealing with themes like guilt, climate change & the environment, our relation to technology, how to build human relationships and communicate in a modern world. It also features a strong female protagonist, something we need to see more of in modern films.
What is it about?
When a recently matched couple embarks on a virtual honeymoon, a dark secret is being discovered, which leads to a chain of events, that will change the lives of everyone involved.
*the project presentation, the script, treatment, and director’s notes are available upon request. All material is currently available in English & German.
Genre: Sci-Fi Drama
Themes: environment/climate change/ technology /relationships/ communication/ guilt/society’s expectations/strong female lead
Status: currently looking for producers/funding (European co-production)
Screenwriter/Director: Natalie MacMahon
2. My new short film “Skeleton Tiger”
“Skeleton Tiger” is currently in pre-production and will be shot this April/May in Berlin.
“The Skeleton Tiger Day” has become the most important public holiday in the year 2033, after the big climate change, when nature does not exist anymore and the majority of animals have become extinct. To honour and remember the environment, this public holiday is celebrated by giving one lucky winner among millions of contestants the chance to experience nature as only older generations have seen it, via a virtual trip, that everyone gets to see during a live TV show.
Genre: Environmentally-themed Sci-fi drama, 8min, English
*available for festivals at the end of 2020!
Interested festivals are welcome to request information already. It is also possible to get on board as a sponsor still for the production.
3. “Pink Me Blue” & “A Violent Noise”
My most recent short films, that were only finished at the end of 2019 and have both already celebrated their world premieres and secured further festival presentations, are available for interested film festivals and distributors.
Feel free to request an online screener and/or press kit. Both films are available with German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and French subtitles.
Imagine a world where everything you know is being questioned and old stereotypes are being broken. “Pink Me Blue” is playing with what we think we know, but maybe things could be different if we open our minds to a new world.
“Pink Me Blue” has already just been featured in the Berlinale edition of “German Films Quarterly”:
“A Violent Noise” is part of my Esperanto project (other films and web series in this series are “A Universal Love Story” (“Universala Amrakonto”) & “A Disease Called Love” (Malsano Nomata Amo”).

Wishing everyone a successful EFM/Berlinale!
