Elephants can be sad, empathetic, joyful, and angry; they are among the few species which can cry. Elephants live with each other, fight with each other, and play with each other. They are inseparable. That is why they are the eponyms of our company. They symbolize the values we stand for.

We are the directors Julia von Heinz, Erik Schmitt, David Wnendt, and the producer Fabian Gasmia. We are an association of highly ambitious filmmakers, focusing all our energy on creating movies that are artistic, entertaining, and emotional. Our goal is to create sophisticated and intelligent stories that connect with a large audience.

Germany is struck by a series of violent racist terror attacks. Luisa, a 20-year-old, joins a subdivision of Antifa to oppose the rising neo-Nazi movement. With her reckless actions, she not only fights against the extreme right but also tries to impress Alfa, an Antifa activist with whom she is secretly in love. Soon, things escalate, and Luisa and her friends clash over whether violence can ever be a legitimate answer to fascism and hatred.

The film premiered in the Official Competition at the Venice International Film Festival in 2020, and it was nominated as Best Film at the German Film Awards 2021

During her media studies in Halle an der Saale, Kathleen tripped over a microphone, launching her unexpectedly into radio journalism. This quirky beginning led her to cover everything from theater festivals to rabbit shows, sparking a passion for sound and video. Her adventurous spirit propelled her into film, where she thrived as 1st AD on projects like David Wnendt's WETLANDS and LOOK WHO’S BACK, as well as serial formats like DRUCK alongside Pola Beck and the innovative vertical film noir SANTA MARIA by Erik Schmitt. Now at Seven Elephants, she dedicates herself to the practical fulfillment of creative dreams and champions young talent. Her streetcasting for SUN AND CONCRETE earned her the 2023 German Acting Award for Best Ensemble.
