We are very excited to announce the nomination of the film scores of "Mes - Walking" and "Mercury Bird" for the "Crystal Pine Award" at International Samobor Film Music Festival, where they have been chosen from more than 300 submissions.

It’s all the more gratifying since “Captain Bligh“, “Kieselstein“ and “Mercury Bird“ found their way onto the DVDs “Shorts for Kids“ and “Animated Animals“ despite the huge number of possible film choices.
To be among friends usually means to pass a happy time without worries. But Daniel (Frederick Lau) has worries galore. He has to go underground for a few months after his mission as an undercover agent went awry.
When starting a new life in Berlin-Neukölln he accidentally meets Abbas (Kida Khodr Ramadan) – and, with him, the warmth and generosity of an entire culture. Despite clichés and prejudices, the two men befriend each other, and Daniel sinks deeper and deeper into the world of Islam – a process that results in consequences when his former life catches up with him.
