Uwe Boll: Director


Born on June 22nd, 1965, in Wermelskirchen, Germany, Uwe Boll was only 10 years old when he started filming short films on his Super 8 camera. His drive to become a filmmaker was undeniable. However, it wasn’t until 1995, when he began working with Taunus Film Production GmbH as a producer and director that Boll’s film career truly took off. Having since financed, produced and directed over 35 feature films with volumne of 700 Mio. $ , Boll’s body of work has continuously proven to be as divisive and controversial as it has diversely creative. His earlier film's based on videogames, came under extremely harsh criticism. The opinion of Boll's work changed in 2009’s with the release of Darfur, a film following the Sudanese genocide. Darfur received critical claim and was lauded as a successful new direction for the director, as well as deemed an extremely personal project close to his heart. The film won the Best Film Award at New York Film festival and was Amnesty International listed the movie as one of the best movies about Africa ever shot.  Boll's movies are shown in over 100 countries in the world, distributed by FOX, UNIVERSAL, LIONSGATE, E1 and have been screened in over 70 international film festivals.

Boll has continued in the vein of Darfur over the last few years with Auschwitz and Max Schmeling and his critically acclaimed drama-thriller Assault on Wall Street, starring Dominic Purcell and Edward Furlong (Terminator II). Never one to slow down, Boll recently released In The Name Of The King: The Last Job and his sequel to Rampage Rampage 2 Capital punishment. Uwe Boll on IMDB

What’s Your NativeAdVantage:

What do you do best?

I’m a very good multitasker and can switch very easily from father, to cook, to drafting a contract or talking to an actor.  In addition to making and selling movies, I just added a big restaurant to my life ( which turns into a lot of work and two different businesses to run.

What makes you the best and how will you become the best?

I’m actually not the best in anything but I’m very competitive in everything that I do.  I was a really good boxer, handball and soccer player  …I’m good at tennis , squash, table tennis, poker, cooking, making movies and running a business but in nothing I’m the best.  My movies are not super successful or critically acclaimed but every single movie I have made on budget and on schedule and have gotten  them sold around the world. 

What are your aspirations?

Personal: I want to be a happy and healthy person, a good friend, son, brother, father, and husband.

Business: I want to still make movies and have one of the best restaurants in Canada. I handled productions from 50.000 $ to 65 Mio. $ budgets and I made my investors more revenue than any other German Film funds but now I’m happy to only use my own money to make or buy movies.

Motto: What do you want to live by?

"What you don’t want other people to do to you – you don’t do to other people."

People: Who do you want to meet?


Places: Where do you want to go?

I don’t like travel to much and I traveled a lot already but I want to go to NOMA in Copenhagen to eat there and the Mugaritz in San Sebastian.

Products: What do you want to have?

A TESLA but I need a station wagon (dogs and kids).

Passions: What hobbies/interests do you want to learn/excel at?

I read a lot and watch documentaries. My biggest hobby is watching boxing and I mean I follow up on boxing worldwide on all fights and fighters. I just love it.  The fights of Gatti – Ward can make me cry and nothing makes me normally cry. If I would go bankrupt I would not cry – to bring that in perspective.
