“Gwendolyn” – in production

Our documentary film “Gwendolyn” (Regie: Ruth Kaaserer) started production in the beginning of 2016. After two weeks of shooting in London, we will follow our Protagonist Gwendolyn to the European Masters in Weightlifting in May.

SHORT SYNOPSIS:
Gwendolyn is in her mid-sixties, barely weighs 52 kg and is a two-time world champion in weightlifting. After battling salivary gland cancer the retired anthropologist should really take a step back, but this is far from what Gwendolyn has in mind. She is training to become world champion once again. Supported by her devoted trainer Pat and her Ivorian husband Charlie, her fight against physical and personal limits begins.
