Before she realized that directing was her true calling, Arabella studied TV Journalism and worked for ZDF Digital as a journalist and producer.
Her journey as a director started with documentaries and branded content where she always kept the focus on authentic storytelling. Later, having directed multiple music videos and TVCs as well, she continued to explore other genres and various creative possibilities filmmaking has to offer.
Having drawn her inspiration from extraordinary and fearless women, she uses her film making platform to express modern femininity with a twist. In her stories, she mirrors real life by integrating the mundane, the significant, the bizarre and the chaos of everyday life through her unique voice.
Her films are a testimony to her perceptiveness, acute observation and aesthetics.
Arabella was honored as a new producer to watch in Cannes 2013. Her short film ‘Crushed by her’ which was written, shot and edited in 99 hours was nominated as the best film at the 99Fire film festival in 2016.
Berlin is her home but her work has made her travel around most of the world blithely.
