In 2014, Oliver Schütte founded tellfilm Deutschland together with Stefan Jäger and Katrin Renz. It is an independent film production company based in Berlin. tellfilm tells unusual stories – emotional and touching, visually unique and with an identity in which you can make out the roots from which the stories have grown.


When ten-year-old Roxy Sauerteig moves into the “unusual” apartment building in Berlin with her mother Amalie, she immediately gets the feeling that the place is teeming with secrets. While her mother wishes Roxy would finally put aside her passion for supposed cases and make friends for herself instead, Roxy just secretly sets out to investigate – because she’s a detective.
