Romanian-born Cristian Walter Straub dreamed of becoming a comic book artist. Or a scholar of religions. But then filmmaking became important. Shortly disrupted by a musical career. Which later deviated into music videos. And fashion films. But of course writing, his first true love, never let go of him. Now he looks back in beauty, but forward in soul. And is now proud owner of one of the largest collections of American Comics in the city of Berlin, where he works a screenwriter, editor and filmmaker (with close ties to Bucharest, Hamburg and Utopos). Citation du jour: Ah, le cinéma ! Qu’est-ce que ce serait s’il n’y avait pas la caméra ! Ce serait… merveilleux, tout simplement !
