Taking new LOOKS at history


Gunnar Dedio, CEO at German production house LOOKSfilm, and Bettina Offermann, VP of distribution arm LOOKSinternational, outline their new slate of shows for C21’s Digital Screenings and explain how streaming has changed their business.


In more than 25 years of producing content for the big and small screens, LOOKSfilm has explored a variety of factual and fictional stories and has often taken visionary and new stylistic paths. On this journey, history has become a major passion and field of expertise for the company, which has film and TV production offices in Leipzig and Berlin.


“We feel that there is more to know about how our world has come to where it is today, to help direct it into tomorrow. And we believe that history writes the best stories and appeals to all age groups,” explains LOOKSfilm CEO Gunnar Dedio.


The titles presented in C21’s Digital Screenings this week reflect this passion and expertise. “They were selected to provide background to current events, relate to topical issues as well as prepare for upcoming anniversaries,” adds Bettina Offermann, VP of Hanover-based distribution arm LOOKSinternational. “Furthermore, they all follow a multi-perspective approach, which is characteristic for LOOKSfilm’s work.”
