Marten Persiel

Marten is a filmmaker, writer and commercial director who spent the last 13 years migrating through England, Spain, Brazil and the Philippines, before returning to his hometown Berlin in 2009, bringing home four documentaries, countless award-winning commercials and an excellent network of filmmakers and producers all around the world. His trademarks are his close bonds with his protagonists and his very own, off-key aesthetics. He always searches for unusual, less restrictive narrative formats to tell his stories. His debut Film This Ain’t California has won a host of international awards and was released worldwide.
