Peter Nestler

Peter Nestler was born in1937 and he is one of the most important filmmakers to emerge in postwar Germany. In 1959 he attended the Munich Academy of Art, where he studied painting (with Ernst Geitlinger) and screen-printing. In the early 1960s, he made a series of films in rural and industrial areas about working-class communities and directed, in the same year, From Greece (1965), about the rise and struggle against fascism. He emigrated to Sweden, where he continued to work on films, some of which were made together with his wife Zsóka, of Hungarian origin. Since then, he has directed several films in different political, social, and historical contexts in Europe and South America.
