Whoever gets involved with the films changes his life. Together they create a consciousness that opens up a completely new quality of life for the viewer. Kuby’s works are carried by strong emotions, opulent images and sometimes very humorous reflections on new dimensions of human existence. Journey with him into countries and situations that are far away from everything we are used to. One watches his films and enjoys reading his books several times with ever new sympathy. Their topicality and their moving, profound effect are of lasting value.



Clemens Kuby graduated as a film director and producer at the German Film and Television Academy Berlin (dffb). His first film LEHRLINGE won 1st prize at the International Film Festival in Oberhausen. This film initiated many self-organized youth centers and was broadcast by ZDF.

From 1983 until 1989

he held a teaching position for AV media at the Munich University of Applied Sciences. He prepared his films, some of which required months of work, for example as a machine fitter at the Blohm & Voss shipyard in Hamburg, as a farmhand in a biodynamically managed agricultural enterprise in Hohenlohe. Complete immersion in the milieu about which he is making a film became his working principle.


he shot his first feature-length cinema documentary SCHNAPPSCHUSS with Pina Bausch and Ariane Mnouchkine.

Thus began the creation of his so-called spiritual films.
