“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.

In a world in which fame seems to arrive faster than the speed of light - often only to evaporate even more quickly - the Hamburg-based trio 1000 Robota is a remarkable phenomenon. Despite being still wet behind the ears, the band has become a huge hype in no time at all. Their energetic post-punk music and blatant social criticism have already brought them a record deal. In her documentary debut, Sandra Trostel follows the trio from the recording of their first album into a crazy vortex of attention, in which the band is interviewed by every single music journalist. With a great sense of atmosphere, Trostel shows how they negotiate the gray areas between art and commerce. The lead singer Anton says: "We want to cause creation, not to be reminiscent of it," is the leitmotif of this idealistic trio: to initiate instead of to respond, and above all not to succumb to the pressures of the free market.
