Short film for the Yagmur Memorial Foundation
In eleven years, six children have died in public supervision in Hamburg, most recently Yagmur on December 18, 2013. The Yagmur Memorial Foundation of founder Michael Lezius annually endows the "Yagmur Memorial Award" for "civil courage in child protection" on the occasion of the anniversary of Yagmur's death.
The short film "Yaya - a life" is based on the tragic fate of the girl Yagmur, who died in 2013 due to mistreatment by her mother, although the family had been supervised by the Youth Welfare. The film is being shot in Hamburg and all participants are working for reduced pay to support this project.
