Since the founding of a_BAHN in 2013, we've been working on developing a cinema of hybridization; in other words, a cinema at the intersection of forms and genres, which breaks free from established norms.
a_BAHN focuses on authors developing challenging narratives with high artistic value, and an international audience. As producers, we accompany them in the development of a singular view on the world. Our authors seek to interpret reality, to give birth to universes. Above all, they seek to inhabit the world poetically. By making us doubt, by making us question ourselves, they make us more alive... and sometimes actors of change.
a_BAHN produced, among other, the highly-acclaimed animated 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) or 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, Raindance Film Festival - Best Experience award).
a_BAHN has currently several films in production, especially ARTE’s documentary Monk, Pannonica & the Jazzmen by Jacques Goldstein, the ambitious TV documentary series Draw For Change or the touring immersive experience Sweet Dreams by Robin McNicholas and Simon Wroe. a_BAHN also works on several films in development, notably Piece, an animated feature film by Alan Holly, Poussière Rouge, a feature-length by Moussa Touré (Cannes Un Certain Regard 2012) and Aimer Moins, a feature-length by Blies Brothers.
