‘Hindenburg’ nabs Bavarian funding

$8.8 million shared among 41 films, TV shows

The true story of a missionary family living with cannibals in New Guinea, a TV mini chronicling the fateful flight of the Hindenburg, and a vampire movie are among 41 film and TV productions that will receive coin from Bavarian state subsidy board FFF Bayern, which handed out E6.3 million ($8.8 million) in its latest allocation.

Roland Suso Richter’s “Dschungelkind” (Child of the Jungle), based on Sabine Kuegler’s autobiographical account of growing up among stone-age tribal people in the Papuan jungle, received the most, nearly $700,000, while commercial TV web RTL’s TV two-parter “Hindenburg” nabbed $418,838.

Some $5 million — more than half of the total subsidy coin — went to films, including the vampire movie “Wir sind die nacht” (We Are the Night), from director Denis Gansel, and “Zeiten aendern sich,” a feature about and starring Berlin rap artist Bushido, from “The Baader Meinhof Complex” director Uli Edel.
