Biography:

Marcus Vetter graduated in Media Studies and Practice at the University of Tubingen. Since 1994 he has worked as a freelance editor, writer, and director at SDR in Stuttgart. In 1998 he went to SWR in Baden-Baden, to work as a freelance documentary filmmaker for culture and society. Vetter's autobiographical documentary, My Father the Turk, was awarded the Prix Europa, and his documentary Traders' Dream, a global report on the phenomenon eBay that was produced in cooperation with Stefan Tolz, was released in German cinemas. His feature documentary The Heart of Jenin, a film about the Palestinian Ismail Khatib, won the German Film Award for Best Documentary. Upon completion, Vetter founded the Cinema Jenin e. V., which has the goal to rebuild the cinema Jenin in the West Bank that has been closed since 1987. Since 2008, Vetter has regularly been travelling to Jenin in order to promote the project; at the same time, he made a film about the project, which was presented in 2012.
