A Bridge into 3 Worlds (Motion picture)

CineDoc: Suspense between journalism and film shooting

Karin Ugowski was already in front of the camera in 2013 as well as in 2014 for the shooting of the documentary with the working title "On the Way to Life" on the occasion of her eventful life in three worlds - born into the Second World War, grown up behind the Iron Curtain and critically remained in a supposedly free world.

The shooting of the very personal and close production directed by the initiator, her son Sebastian Gilmano Ugovsky-Strassburger, requires an incredible sensitivity, trust, but also journalistic distance to get the exciting and critical questions about this "world"-spanning life answered. An actress with a life that is not only artistically eventful: Over 40 years in front of the camera and on stage in the political changes of time and in the context of German-German history.
