In solidarity and unity with the SAGAFTRA and WGA strike, we are postponing our "Brooklyn"  production. 

In the case of contracts accepted and signed by all parties, we set new planned days for our production on April 22 - May 25, 2024 and the project will be restructred according to our locations, cast and crew prepared for the previous shooting period. 

We wish both Unions success in their fight for fair wages and better working conditions, which are so needed in the new era of the film, streaming platforms and broadcasters industries. 

In Solidarity

"Hollywood Manifesto"

by Daniel Strehlau 

I do not enter into intimate relationships with the people I work with. I am a feminist. Women's rights are human rights. I support me2 movement. I am a humanitarian and my life is built on a moral and ethical core built on Jewish values such as compassion, empathy, philanthropy, justice, fairness, and honesty. I am against anti-Semitism, racism, xenophobia, sexism, discrimination and all exploitation of people and animals. I am against any kind of violence in life and senseless violence in movies and media. I fight environmental, economic, gender and racial injustice. All lives matter only if black lives matter. I am not pre-judgmental, or at least I try not to be.

Daniel Strehlau,

Daniel Strehlau Film Art Work
Daniel Strehlau was six years old, when he started draw frames, like a screen, inside of which he created human beings in some drama situations with dialogs, he wrote the title:"PSYCHOLOGICAL GRAMA", because he thought that drama and grammar is the same. Later he collected money for 8 months for his first motion camera Lomo 219 Super 8 MM to make his first movies.
