Andrea Hintemaier was on a train from Frankfurt to Berlin when the idea for her film “Bruno” came to her. “It unfolded image by image,” she says. “The movie wrote itself.” This short film, which will have its Atlanta debut at the Out on Film Festival, is a coming of age story about two young, gay teenagers. Hintemaier also plays a single mother in the movie.
Hintemaier is a native of Austria but was raised mostly in Germany. As a child, she and an older friend would produce plays for their neighbors. Hintemaier studied drama in high school and attended drama school in Germany. She has acted in a number of movies and television programs both in German and English and has co-produced several short films. “Bruno” is her first solo production as a writer and director.
