I have experienced Christoph as an artist who became personal. Looked others in the eyes! Took note of pupils, the disabled, celebrities as people, artists, those who had failed, as well as the hopeful! As a pupil, he shot his first film. In the Operndorf he leaves behind the principle of hope. When I arrived at the Operndorf, I was very enthusiastic right from the first moment! Simply a good idea to follow, even if the opera has not been erected. But the classrooms of the school, the kitchen and the sanitary station have been erected; because we all have the desire that every child should have the possibility to eat normally and to be healthy, free to think and learn. The passion and enthusiasm of the whole team around Aino Laberenz, but also the perseverance to follow through with something so good and clear, should be an example for everyone! I was very impressed by the artistic exchange of Tobias Dostal and his 4-week film and camera project with the kids on site, the good idea of Philip Kojo Metz a conduct a drawing course with the children. Thankful for the beautiful conversations we had and for the lemon tree, which we were allowed to plant together with the caretaker and with the help of mainly sand, a little water and goat dung. Conclusion: People, please support this great project!
