a_BAHN was cofounded in Luxembourg in 2013 by the producer Marion Guth and the filmmaking duo the Blies brothers. The producer François Le Gall joined the team as an associate in 2017. Since they've been working on developing the art of hybridization; trying to be at the intersection of forms and genres, which breaks free from established norms. a_BAHN has a unique experience in original out-of-the-box and hybrid contents. The company is fully dedicated to supporting the creation of content that is both artistic and accurate, to bringing together the traditional worlds of film and television with new media, and also to developing challenging narratives with high artistic value and an international audience. a_BAHN also wishes to put the international recognition of the company, as well as the skills of its teams, at the service of the development of its activity in the Greater Rhine Basin region (Luxembourg, Grand Est France, Baden Württemberg Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, and the Netherlands), and thus mark its desire to strengthen cross-border cooperation and co-productions in a territory dear to the heart of the company's founders. To pursue this goal they created a_BAHN Strasbourg in 2022.
a_BAHN produced, among others, the highly-acclaimed animated social impact film Zero Impunity by Blies Brothers (2019, Annecy International Animation Film Festival, Sao Paulo IFF, Moscow IFF, Thessaloniki IFF, Amiens IFF, Guadalajara IFF...), Blies Brothers’ transmédia Soundhunters (ARTE - 2016, nominated for the Prix Europa), VR films like 7 Lives by Jan Kounen (2019, Tribeca Film Festival) and Cosmos Within Us by Tupac Martir (2019, Mostra di Venezia International Film Festival), or more recently ARTE’s documentary Monk, Pannonica, an American Story by Jacques Goldstein (Spring 2022). a_BAHN currently has several projects in production, especially the ambitious TV documentary series Draw For Change, or the touring immersive experience Sex, Desire and Data in coproduction with PHI studio in Montreal.
