Oskar Roehler started his career as a screenwriter for various cinema films and directed his first feature, GENTLEMAN, in 1995. His film NO PLACE TO GO (2000), a very personal and sensitively told portrait of his mother, was Roehler’s breakthrough and received the German Film Award in Gold. His other award-winning films include: ANGST (2003) which premiered in the competition at the Berlinale in 2003, AGNES AND HIS BROTHERS (2004) which screened at the Venice Film Festival, as well as his film adaptation of Michel Houellebecq’s novel ATOMISED (2006). JUD SÜSS - FILM OHNE GEWISSEN (2010) which also played in competition at the Berlinale was one of his most polarizing films. After SOURCES OF LIFE (2012) which premiered in Karlovy Vary in competition, OUTMASTERED is his latest film.
