Ben Miethke’s work is characterised in is his striving for purity and search for the gist of humanness. He sometimes addresses grand, universal questions, sometimes small sentiments – always looking for a subtle human feel.

Growing up in the mist of defunct steel district Krefeld-Stahldorf he featured the motifs of a rivalry between the two districts football teams in his directorial debut „Roll the old chariot“. Both shared a stuck isolation that he projected onto two rugby teams who fight each other on a remote Irish island – and find a small victory in defeat.

He graduated film school at renowned Filmakdemie Baden-Württemberg in Ludwigsburg with two approaches on deconstructed storytelling: the triptych „Isolated Protagonists“ and his episodic piece „Dasein und Sein“.

Ben is based in Berlin, Germany.
