Christina Seeland

born 1973, studied directing at the Institut für Film & Theater Hamburg in the class of Jürgen Flimm.

She worked in industrial kitchens, assembly line production, with severely ill people, firstgraders, youth and horses; as a lector and for the radio; with Niklaus Helbling as “Joey the eye” in `Präriepriester´; was an assistant to Johann Kresnik, Gottfried Helnwein and intern to Pina Bausch.

Seeland wrote stage versions of Myron Levoy’s „Der gelbe Vogel“ and Astrid Lindgren’s „Klingt meine Linde“, deleted all but one sentence of Schiller’s „Kabale und Liebe“ for the stage, and won the German Television Award for her documentary film treatment „Wärst Du lieber tot?“.

In the last ten years, Seeland has also documented her experiences on the subject of healing, calendar claims and survival in German dental practices after her own severe poisoning. Referring to that she works on a book with the title TRUST – an unscientific experiential process. Seeland lives in Schleswig Holstein and in particular works as a painter and drummer under pseudonym.

TRUST

A long-term experience report through countless healing methods, detoxification and survival in German dental practices (including book, product and practice recommendation)
