Nora Fingscheidt is an acclaimed German director and screenwriter known for her raw and authentic directing style. Her participation in the Max Ophüls Preis film festival since 2011, where she won the prize in 2017 for her documentary film "Without This World" (Ohne diese Welt), marked her emergence as a promising talent. However, Fingscheidt's critically acclaimed film "System Crasher" catapulted her to international recognition. The film, which premiered at the 69th Berlin International Film Festival in 2019, earned her the Alfred Bauer Prize and several other awards.
Fingscheidt's directing style is characterised by intense emotional storytelling, exploring the lives of marginalised characters with a commitment to social realism. She uses a documentary-like approach, with hand-held cameras, natural lighting and naturalistic performances to capture the rawness of human experiences. Through her films, Fingscheidt creates a powerful and immersive atmosphere, using close-ups and long takes to evoke strong emotions from the audience.
Her last film release has been the successful “The Unforgivable” featuring Sandra Bullock, streaming on Netflix. Her next film to be released in 2024 is "The Outrun" with Saoirse Ronan as the female lead protagonist.
