FFF Bavaria is funding “Call Me Levi”
FilmFernsehFonds Bavaria is funding our ARD Degeto mini-series Call Me Levi (WT) about Levi Strauss & Jacob Davis.
The 4-part mini-series tells the astonishing story of these two Jewish migrants from Buttenheim in Bavaria and Riga in Latvia as they struggle to make a new life for themselves on the wild West Coast of America in the mid-19th century and launch a groundbreaking invention in the world of fashion: BLUE JEANS.
The film will be directed by Neele Leana Vollmar, who is also responsible for the screenplay together with Robert Krause.
We would like to thank the FFF Bayern for their trust and look forward to working on this exciting project.
