Access all areas: For one week, kids and teens will get a look behind the scenes at Wassermusik. They will document the preparations for the festival with cameras and microphones, talking to the musicians and organizers. Guided by the experienced filmmakers Susanne Dzeik and Karen Francia, they will develop ideas for stories and realize them as a group.

She has realized several short and documentary films and worked as a camerawoman for the long-term documentary Nach dem Brand (2012), co-produced by the NDR, which was nominated for the Prix Europa and the Grimme Prize.
