David Nawrath

Born in Berlin, grew up alternately in Germany and Iran. In 2005, together with Florian Schewe, he made his directing debut with the feature-length documentary Moharram - Jugend der ewigen Morgenröte, a portrait of modern teenagers in restrictive Tehran. The film was screened at the Kassel DOK Festival in 2005, among others, and in the same year Nawrath started studying directing at the German Film and Television Academy Berlin. His 17-minute short film Was bleibt was nominated for the German Short Film Award and for the European Short Film Award. At the festival Premiers Plans in Angers (France), Nawrath was awarded the Grand Jury Prize in the section 'European Student Films'. He graduated with the short film Die offene Tür (2010). In 2011, Nawrath was selected as one of six international filmmakers for the Résidence du Festival de Cannes in Paris. Back in Germany, he shot several documentary series with the cook Sarah Wiener for the culture TV channel Arte. For the public broadcaster RBB he realized the reportage Mein wunderbarer Imbiss - Mit Kim Fisher übers Land (2017).
