Biography

Robert Bohrer, born on April 28, 1979 in Bonn, Germany, completed an apprenticeship as a film and video editor after graduating from high school. In 2007 he studied directing at the German Film and Television Academy Berlin (dffb). His student short film "Manolo"(2010), a coming of age story told with references to James Bond using stylistic devices from the action film genre, was awarded the German Short Film Prize in Gold.   

Over the next few years, Bohrer worked as a director and scriptwriter for other short films. He made his feature film debut with the documentary "Verlorener Horizont" (BO/DE 2013, co-directed by Emma Rosa Simon) about Bolivian conscripts training to become sailors. He then shot the documentary "The Green Triangle" (US/DE 2014) about the triumph of marijuana in the USA. Bohrer also worked as an editor for various TV documentaries and series, such as "Der Aidskrieg" (2011), "Der spanische Meister - Das schmutzige Geschäft mit gefälschten Antiken" (2015) and " Deutschlands große Clans - Die Bahlsen Story" (2017).  

Together with Emma Rosa Simon, Bohrer directed his first feature-length film, which was also their graduation film: "Liebesfilm" ("Love Film", 2018, both also co-wrote the screenplay), about a dreamy thirty-year-old whose life is being mixed up by a seemingly harmless question asked by his new girlfriend. The film premiered at the Munich Filmfest 2018 and was released in German cinemas in spring 2019.
