Our name is an ancient word for things that are beyond - literally and figuratively.


Most recently, our travels have brought us to Ethiopia. Now, right from of the hottest music clubs of quirky Addis Ababa comes JAMMING ADDIS (formerly 'Swinging Addis') a cinematic feature documentary about Ethiopian music and musicians that will break taboos and preconceptions about that country. Check it out here.


The upcoming GUZO will be a formidable journey through the high mountains, low deserts and unkown regions of Ethiopia.

GUZO is also our first collaboration with the prestigious Weimar University and Franz Liszt School of Music. Other projects in development are investigations into sexuality in the Arab world such as SEAMS OF DESIRE, history bios like THE GERMAN LAWRENCE about Britain’s most fierce enemy in the Orient, or filmic essays like ART AND WAR.


Meet our team: director-producer Dirk van den Berg, producer Herbert Gehr and cinematograper Henrik Sauer.
