ONIX FILM GmbH was founded in 1983 in
New York, by Gabriel Baur and Kurt Mäder, as a company to make their own
films; films which focus on societally relevant themes, taking risks
and testing limits and transferring them to the big screen. Their work
includes the formal, radical, experimental film DIE AUSNAHME UND DIE
REGEL (“THE EXCEPTION AND THE RULE”), the fiction DIE BETTKÖNIGIN ( “THE
QUEEN OF BED”, which won the heart of, among others, Jonas Mekas,
arguably the most important supporter of independent and avant-garde
cinema in den USA) as well as VENUS BOYZ, now a classic in its genre.
The documentary WILD DREAM SONG (AT) is currently in production
