I AM DOCU
In his film , Volker Koepp embarks on a journey to the places of his own past: Stettin, his birth place in 1944, and Berlin-Karlshorst, his childhood home, Koepp has again and again met people and found places located between these two cities and turned them into the protagonists of his films. Now, he once again returns to these places and discovers that his own biography overlaps with the biographies of his erstwhile protagonists as well as with the history of the region.
Born in 1944, in Stettin.. He subsequently studied at Dresden University of Technology from 1963 to 1965. One year later, he started to study at Deutsche Hochschule für Filmkunst Potsdam-Babelsberg and graduated in 1969. After finishing an episode of the collective production "Der Oktober kam..." that was headed by Karl Gass in 1970, Koepp focused entirely on documentary films. Still in the same year, he got a permanent position as a director at DEFA studio for documentary films where he worked in the group "dokument" in East Berlin.
