Mutter der Tibeter (German Trailer) 2018

Trailer zu meinem ersten langen Dokumentarfilm über Leben und Werk von Irmtraut Wäger.

Kurzbeschreibung: Eine Frau beschließt nach ihrer Pensionierung einen sinnvollen dritten Lebensabschnitt. Irmtraut Wäger leitet 30 Jahre lang die Deutsche Tibethilfe und unterstützt den Dalai Lama
und die Tibeter im Exil. Sie sammelt 30 Millionen Euro an Spenden und hilft damit über 5.000 Tibetischen Patenkindern. Außerdem ermöglicht sie so den Bau von Schulen, Krankenhäusern,
Kindergärten und Altenheimen in ganz Indien. Sie gilt heute als leuchtendes Vorbild gelungener Flüchtlingshilfe.

Mutter der Tibeter wurde nominiert für den People’s Choice Award des BigSyn FilmFestivals in London.
