Actors' Talk © Still from the Film VICTORIA

Spot on: Frederick Lau

We are delighted that Frederick Lau will travel to China to present his new film MY BROTHER SIMPLE as part of the 5th Festival of German Cinema. We would like to take this rare opportunity to talk about his accomplishments as a performer. How has he been feeling, what has he been thinking about since his breakthrough with THE WAVE? What influence did VICTORIA have on his career and where should the young actor’s journey take him now? With MY BROTHER SIMPLE and the Special Screening VICTORIA, we shall take a look at his greatest cinema successes thus far, and discuss them with him afterwards.

Frederick Lau © Nadja Klier Frederick Lau was born in Berlin in 1989 and has established himself in recent years as one of the most outstanding actors of his generation. He had his first lead in a feature film in Andreas Kleinert’s “Head Under Water” (Freischwimmer, 2007), followed by the major success with “The Wave” (Die Welle, 2008).  He received the German Film Award for Best Supporting Actor and the Undine Award as Best Young Character Actor for his role as Tim in Dennis Gansel’s school drama. After a Bavarian Television Award for “Neue Vahr Süd” (2011), Lau’s talent was recognized with another German Film Award for Sebastion Schipper’s “Victoria” (2015).
