Driven to tell stories, Marko Roth is always on the lookout for authentic encounters and emotional moments. He succeeds best when traveling all over the world. Since his youth, traveling has been one of his greatest passions. For him, it means more than just discovering new cultures, it is also always closely connected with getting to know people and their feelings. Marko is convinced that people who travel are also people who have a story to tell. His journey has already taken him to over 50 different countries.
Marko's interest in film began as an early adult. During a year abroad in Canada, he deepened his experience in film. After graduating from high school, he studied media studies in Stuttgart and Copenhagen.
With commissions for clients such as Amazon, Mercedes and National Geographic, Marko has already established himself as a sensitive observer of people and nature, winning awards including gold at Clio and Ciclope, silver at the New York Festivals and a shortlisting at the CANNES YDA.
For the new Leibniz film (JvM/SPREE), Marko once again creates striking images. The narratives focus on the everyday madness of families with children. Despite sleepless nights, tantrums at the breakfast table and bruises on the soccer field, parental love dominates even the greatest chaos.
The film was shot with real families who were searched out through street castings in Berlin. Marko Roth and his kindergarten friend and cinemaphotographer Moritz Dehler even spent a night at the apartment of one family - just to record the natural moment when the kids wake up their parents the next morning on camera. The result is a warm-hearted, authentic documentary film in which all mothers and fathers can recognize themselves.
