CHRISTINA VOIGT // DOCUMENTARY FILM & GRAPHIC DESIGN with social significance

Christina holds an MA in VISUAL & MEDIA ANTHROPOLOGY (FU Berlin) and a Diploma in MEDIA DESIGN (University of Applied Sciences Augsburg). Since 2003 she works as a director, editor, photographer and graphic designer.

One of her focuses in filmmaking is NEPAL where she has directed 4 documentaries so far. Her new documentary “After Shangrila" (92min)  will be out on DVD by early 2019.

Her work on social suffering has been strongly influenced by danish photographer JACOB HOLDT (»AMERICAN PICTURES«), with whom she toured the Southern States of the US in 2007. In the same year she curated and helped organizing his exhibition “GHETTOES IN OUR HEARTS" in Copenhagen that involved more than 600 of his photographs.

In 2011 she curated and designed the EINAR SCHLEEF ZENTRUM in Sangerhausen, an exhibition about the director, painter, writer and stage designer EINAR SCHLEEF.
