Writer Statement

A visual story is a powerful tool for personal transformation and as a writer I am a photographer who captures the human experience with my words. I write from the lens of marginalization. I see the inequities in life and try to convey those in words to assist those who are interpreting it on the screen to enlighten the world. I write as a ministry calling knowing that media in all forms is the most powerful element for change. It matters greatly that my characters are well formed and lack stereotypical attributes. When they speak I want a farmer in Idaho to say that is how I feel about a subject. I also want a prince in Dubai to think I’ve captured his sentiment. I’ve invested thousands of hours into writing because it gives me great joy to imagine. When I write I try to portray a character who in all of their imperfections has a triumphant side to their humanity. Creativity of the mind is a wonderful gift from the Lord and I have promised Him that I will be a good steward of it.

Writer Statement

Everyone knows pictures from Afghanistan. When I type “Afghanistan” into Google, the first images I see are mainly war, destruction and military. So why I want to make a story about Afghanistan. Because two newspaper articles touched me in a special way, which shows individual fates and not generalities. I came across the first article in Spiegel 2016: André Bodemann had certainly imagined his first day at work differently. On Thursday morning at Camp Marmal in Masar-i-Scharif in northern Afghanistan, the brigadier general was appointed the new regional commander of the NATO training mission “Resolute Support”. There was a celebration in the field camp. Even a few guests from Germany had arrived. A reporter asked what the Bundeswehr officer hoped for from his post. “I must first see what I can expect here”, said Bodemann cautiously, and less than ten hours later he got an impression of how dangerous Afghanistan is. An emergency call was received from the German Consulate General in the city shortly after 11pm local time: Taliban fighters had blown up the high outer wall with a small truck. The detonation was so violent that windows burst within a radius of kilometres. A group of radical Islamists penetrated the area and fired on them. Most of the consulate staff barricaded themselves in the panic room, others locked themselves in the basement. I found the second article when I looked more closely at the PSA-Personal Protection Abroad of the Federal Police and read the following article about the death of this bodyguard. Keller is a reluctant officer. The fan of the American police series Miami Vice sees himself in the role of the discreet, smart bodyguard. During the phone calls with Mario, Verena Häcker increasingly feels that her boyfriend feels out of place in Kabul. He tells her that he often sits alone in his room in the evening and reads. He gets on well with his colleagues, but he is not used to living together with five other men in a strictly guarded house for months.
In Kabul, Gumpert and his colleague immediately turn around during a drive. Then they see the other man’s completely demolished car. An explosion has hurled it 50 metres, it lies on the passenger’s side with its underbody smashed through and the bonnet torn open. The car hit a remote detonator that went off right under Mario Keller’s driver’s seat. Both articles suddenly gave the country of Afghanistan a completely different face. It was no longer about war, terror and destruction, but about a brigadier general and a bodyguard. And both suddenly had a face.

Jeder kennt Bilder aus Afghanistan. Wenn ich bei Google „Afghanistan“ eingebe, kommt bei den ersten Bildern vor allem Krieg, Zerstörung und Militär vor. Warum ich also eine Geschichte aus Afghanistan machen möchte. Weil mich zwei Zeitungsartikel besonders berührt haben, die individuelle Schicksale zeigt und keine Allgemeinplätze. Ich stieß auf den ersten Artikel im Spiegel 2016: Seinen ersten Arbeitstag hatte sich André Bodemann sicher anders vorgestellt. AmDonnerstagmorgen wurde der Brigadegeneral im Camp Marmal im nordafghanischen Masar-i-Scharif zum neuen Regionalkommandeur der Nato-Trainingsmission “Resolute Support” ernannt. Im Feldlager gab es eine Feier. Sogar ein paar Gäste aus Deutschland waren angereist. Ein Reporter fragte, was sich der Bundeswehroffizier von seinem Posten erhoffe. “Ich muss erst mal sehen, was mich hier erwartet”, sagte Bodemann zurückhaltend.Keine zehn Stunden später bekam er einen Eindruck, wie gefährlich Afghanistanist. Aus dem deutschen Generalkonsulat in der Stadt ging kurz nach 23 Uhr Ortszeit ein Notruf ein: Mit einem Kleinlaster hattenTaliban-Kämpfer die hohe Außenmauer gesprengt. Die Detonation war so heftig, dass noch im Umkreis von Kilometern Scheiben zerbarsten. Eine Gruppe der Radikalislamisten drang auf das Gelände vor und schoss um sich. Die meisten Mitarbeiter des Konsulats verschanzten sich im Panikraum, andere schlossen sich im Keller ein. Den zweiten Artikel fand ich, als ich mich intensiver mit der PSA-Personenschutz Ausland der Bundespolizei auseinandersetzte und den folgenden Artikel über denTod dieses Personenschützers las. Keller ist ein zurückhaltender Beamter. Der Fan der amerikanischen PolizistenserieMiami Vice sieht sich in der Rolle des diskreten, smarten Leibwächters. Während der Telefonate mit Mario hat Verena Häcker immer öfter das Gefühl, dass sich ihr Freund in Kabul fehl am Platz fühlt. Er erzählt ihr, dass er abends oft allein in seinem Zimmer sitzt und liest. Er versteht sich zwar gut mit den Kollegen, aber das monatelange Zusammenleben mit fünf anderen Männern in einem streng bewachten Haus ist er nicht gewohnt.
In Kabul drehen Gumpert und sein Kollege während einer Ausfahrt sofort um. Dann sehen sie das vollkommen demolierte Auto der anderen. Eine Explosion hat es 50 Meter weit geschleudert, es liegt mit durchschlagenem Unterboden und aufgerissener Motorhaube auf der Beifahrerseite. Der Wagen ist auf einen ferngezündeten Sprengsatz gefahren, der direkt unter dem Fahrersitz von Mario Keller hochging. Beide Artikel gaben dem Land Afghanistan plötzlich ein ganz anderes Gesicht. Es ging nicht mehr um Krieg, Terror und Zerstörung, sondern es ging um einen Brigadegeneral und einen Personenschützer. Und beide hatten plötzlich ein Gesicht.
