Hank Levine, the German producer who spent a couple of years in L.A. where we met before he moved to Brazil where he worked at 02 Filmes with Fernando Mirielles and had a family. He co-produced the Academy Award-nominated films City of God and Wasteland and returned to Germany a couple of years ago. He is now producing the English language directorial debut of Hans Weingartner (The Edukators) with the screen adaptation of the best selling true story of Larry Orbach and Vivien Orbach-Smith’s Soaring Underground (Der Taucher). As a young German-Jewish Berliner struggling to survive in WWII Berlin, Larry Orbach resisted and made a new life. The film will shoot in Germany, Brazil, Africa and Asia. This year, Levine will also direct his first film, Exodus, an international feature documentary. He also produced this year’s Berlinale Competition film Praia Do Futuro.
