Bandits

Bandits

A music film. Four female jailbirds of different ages and backgrounds, whose common link is their band, break out of prison ... and unintentionally set a whole cult in motion. The protagonists manage to seal their own shortcomings and turn their asocial behaviour into social co-operation ... and always through the same outlet: music. A heroic story. Everything is possible - if you have nothing to lose.


Katja von Garnier was born in 1966 in Wiesbaden and studied at the Academy for Television & Film (HFF/M) in Munich from 1989-1994. She founded the VELA-X Filmproduktion with fellow student Ewa Karlstroem in 1990 and made her directorial debut with the short Lautlos in 1991. The feature Making Up (Abgeschminkt, 1993) won her a Bavarian Film Prize, the Student OSCAR, German Film Prize for Best Newcomer Director and the Ernst Lubitsch Prize in 1994. She made a documentary on the making of In The Line Of Fire in 1994 and shot her first feature-length film Bandits in 1996.
