„ROBIN”, 2007
short film, 20. Min.


8-year-old Robin comes back into his family after 3 months in a foster home and finds himself lost, trying to cope with a very difficult family situation. When his parents accidentally hurt his new born baby sister in a quarrel, his stepfather disappears and the mother is in shock, lying around on the sofa. Robin has to deal with the situation on his own. Torn apart between the urge to help his crying sister and his loyalty towards his mother, Robin is forced to make a very difficult decision.

The graduation work of Hohendahl (Producer) and Olderdissen (Director) „Robin“ had its debut at the International Film Festival in Berlin in 2008. Since then the work received a range of prizes.
