Der nicht mehr blutjunge Schauspieler Jan hat sich bei einer Gala schwer angetrunken schwer daneben benommen, und die Boulevard-Presse druckt am nächsten Tag ein peinliches Foto. Jans Alzheimer-kranker Vater erkennt ihn darauf, nur im wahren Leben nicht, seine Tochter malt es im Kindergarten mit Buntstiften nach, seine Exfrau hält ihn für ´´ein Nichts´´, und seine Freundin - will reden. Jan, der Familienmensch, wäre gern für alle da und doch am liebsten einfach mal allein. Denn wer viele Rollen spielt im Leben, vergisst vielleicht irgendwann nicht nur seinen Text, sondern auch sich selbst. Und so geht er mitten im Leben auf die Suche nach dem Sinn des Liebens...Der Schauspieler Oliver Wnuk wechselt gefühlvoll in die Rolle des Autors und schreibt über den modernen Mann in all seinen Rollen: als Vater und Sohn, als Kumpel und Partner - eine außergewöhnliche Liebeserklärungsgeschichte. 1.

Brilliant, haunting, breathtakingly suspenseful, Night Film is a superb literary thriller by the New York Times best-selling author of the ´´blockbuster debut´´ (People) Special Topics in Calamity Physics. On a damp October night, beautiful young Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Though her death is ruled a suicide, veteran investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. As he probes the strange circumstances surrounding Ashley’s life and death, McGrath comes face-to-face with the legacy of her father: the legendary, reclusive, cult-horror-film director Stanislas Cordova - a man who hasn’t been seen in public for more than 30 years. For McGrath, another death connected to this seemingly cursed family dynasty seems more than just a coincidence. Though much has been written about Cordova’s dark and unsettling films, very little is known about the man himself. Driven by revenge, curiosity, and a need for the truth, McGrath, with the aid of two strangers, is drawn deeper and deeper into Cordova’s eerie, hypnotic world. The last time he got close to exposing the director, McGrath lost his marriage and his career. This time he might lose even more. Night Film, the gorgeously written, spellbinding new novel by the dazzlingly inventive Marisha Pessl, will hold you in suspense to the final minute.

Have you ever wanted to make your own film? Is there a story you want to tell? You might even think that this is impossible. ´´Studios make films, not the little guy.´´ This is probably what you tell yourself. Do you watch films with more than a casual eye? You probably want to know how they were able to get perfect lighting in your favorite scene, or how to write a professional screenplay. Do you watch Inside the Actor´s Studio and hang on every word they say? My last question is, do sit in your seat at the movie when it´s over watching the credits as everyone else files out the door? I know you have dreamed about it, but have you ever seriously contemplated making your own film? Yes, Virginia, you too can make your own film, all on your own. If you have played with the idea of what it would be like to direct a film, then you have already made an imaginary plan. Why not make it a reality? What else are you doing with your time: going to work at the factory every day? Are you thinking that filmmaking is only for studios and professionals? I believe that independent film has changed all the rules. Doors are opening all over for aspiring filmmakers. Why not give it a try - what do you have to lose? With a little imagination and a lot of hard work you can do this, but you need the basics to get started. If you feel like you don´t know where to start the process, I will show you. 1.
