Laura Lazzarin was born and raised in Italy. After completing her degree in Communication and Sociology, she moved to Berlin in 2005 to study Directing at the DFFB. Her first feature documentary film “Land of Joy” (2011) was shown at the 29th Torino Film Festival.
“Entfaltung” is a portrait of Ute Strub and her life work as a pedagogue and physiotherapist. Greatly inspired by the work of Hungarian pediatritian Emmi Pikler, Ute Strub tells of the importance of playing – for adults as well as children.
