Alexander Tuschinski, born in 1988, directed his first short movies when he was 16 years old.
Before enrolling at Stuttgart Media University in 2008, he had already filmed several short films and music-videos for self-composed satirical songs. When he started his studies of Audiovisual Media, student life quickly gave him lots of ideas for his first feature-length film Menschenliebe, which he wrote, produced and directed. The film won numerous international awards, amongst others, „Best Comedy Film“ at Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival.
Tuschinski graduated Stuttgart Media University in 2011 as a Bachelor of Engineering in Audiovisual Media, and University of Stuttgart in 2014 as a Bachelor of Arts in history and literature.
"At twenty-three, Alexander Tuschinski has begun to reveal his own very personal voice (...) with talent that is blossoming splendidly."
