Argentina, 2016: in a remote desert 700 Mennonites of German origin lead 18th-century lives without electricity, music, or any of the amenities modern life affords. But is it really conceivable to reject modernity altogether? Without This World captures the portrait of a tranquil, contemplative society caught between tradition and change.
Born in 1983, Nora Fingscheidt grew up in Germany and Argentina. She worked for film festivals such as Berlinale and International Short Film Festival Interfilm Berlin. Later Nora became board member of the self-organized film school filmArche e.V. with which she organized international youth projects and directed three shorts. In 2007 she was trained as an acting coach under Sigrid Andersson. The following year she began her studies in film directing at Film Academy Baden-Württemberg. Her film school short film SYNCOPE was nominated for the German Short Film Award 2011. In 2012 she received a scholarship to participate in a film-studies exchange program at UCLA in Los Angeles. BOULEVARD'S END, shot in Venice Beach, has played in more than 40 festivals, its U.S. premiere took place at the 46th New Directors/New Films. WITHOUT THIS WORLD was her diploma film. At the moment she is in pre-production for SYSTEM CRASHER, a project she has spent the past three years researching and developing. The Berlin-based talent agency Homebase has represented her since 2014.
