WHO WE ARE
As journalists and documentarians, they have spent six years working across Africa, Asia, the Americas and Europe, covering culture, conflicts and humanitarian crises. During this time, Dennis and Patrick have written, directed, shot and edited more than a dozen documentaries for networks such as ARTE, DW, ARD & ZDF. With their production companies Weinert Brothers Limited and Weinert Brothers GbR, the brothers occasionally also work as producers.
When Dennis and Patrick are not working as reporters, they focus on creating their personal experimental photography and film projects. The brothers have written, curated and published two volumes of documentary photo books (2015 & 2019) and are currently working on an essay documentary film, which deals with the theme of identity.
