Biography

Sobo Swobodnik was born in 1966. He was raised in the Swabian Alb and graduated from school in Aalen. He went on to study acting in Munich, worked as director and actor at several theatres and as a journalist for public radio.

Since 1997, he has published numerous plays and novels, including children's books, the novel "Fallers Held" and a series of thrillers. Over the years, his writings garnered Swobodnik several scholarships and awards. Already in 2004, Sobo Swobodnik presented his first feature film "being grossmutter" at the Max-Ophüls-Preis Festival. This was followed by the documentary "Wir kommen uns beschweren" (2008), the drama "Ab jetzt sind wir anders" (2009) and the short "Keine Zeit für Helden" (2010). "Der Papst ist kein Jeansboy", a portrait of the eccentric performer and celebrity Hermes Phettberg, was awarded the 2011 Documentary Film Award in Saarbrücken.

 

The following year, Swobodnik's documentary "Unplugged: Leben Guaia Guaia" premiered at the Munich Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award. The film about two unconventional street musicians was released in July 2013.

At the 2014 Documentary Film Festival Munich, Swobodnik presented his next film "Lebe schon lange hier", for which he observed a street crossing in Berlin from a window over the course of one year. In May 2015, "Silentium - Vom Leben im Kloster", a film about everyday life in a historic convent, opened in Germany. Shortly afterwards, his 2011 documentary "Der Papst ist kein Jeansboy" was also finally released.
