My name is Diego Hauenstein (b. 1989), I'm a swiss screenwriter and filmdirector based in Berlin. Currently, I'm a student of feature film directing at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg.

I come from an artistic family. My dad is a clown and my mum ran away with the circus. I never had to fight for pursuing a creative career, instead I was gifted with a nice amount of expectations and internal pressure. At the moment, I’m working on a comedy called The Handy of Power. It's a satirical remix of Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and our reality – low-budget style. So wish us luck! Or give us your money! I speak English, French, Spanish and German, of course. I take Euro or Swiss Francs.

Thanks for the recognition of my work
