Antje Schneider readying the documentary David
- The film will focus on a hospital manager’s ambition to innovate and provide the best possible care for his patients
German filmmaker Antje Schneider is preparing her next film, David. The documentary will follow David-Ruben Thies, the manager of a county hospital in Germany, who has lofty ambitions. David wishes to put in place a new kind of hospital, one that resembles a comfortable hotel and in which everyone gets the best treatment regardless of their health-insurance coverage. Organic food, improved working conditions for the staff, and the implementation of innovative care concepts are all part of his vision for a better kind of hospital. The documentary will show the obstacles he has to face while trying to bring his dream to fruition, including one that nobody had anticipated: the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
David is being produced by Kloos & Co Ost UG (Stefan Kloos) in co-production with ZDF/Das kleine Fernsehspiel. Its world sales are being handled by Berlin-based sales agent Rise and Shine (also Stefan Kloos).
