With the documentary film project AUFBRUCH, we, Matthias and Kristine, want to educate people about the causes and effects of prostitution and strengthen movements that work for a decent life for all. We invite you to look at where it hurts to understand how prostitution affects society as a whole and individuals. Listen to stories from people with many years of diverse experience, supplemented by knowledge from science and research. For the complete documentary we have already been shooting with all the protagonists and many hours of film material are ready to be processed. In order to conduct the post-production, we depend on supporters.
The next steps that we would like to implement are to create English subtitles for our trailer so that it can be distributed globally and to acquire a music license for the main film that is in progress. (Update 10/10/2021: REACHED! The first requirement sum (1,400 €) has come together. Now it's time for a storyline and rough cut.)
