Little background information:
A basic demo version (VHS) of this film was produced in Autumn
1997 and sent to the German Ministry of the Interior. From there
it was forwarded to the "National Committee for the European
Year against racism". Not only the Ministry of the Interior,
but also five other institutions have shown their interest in this
That is why we planned to shoot a new cinema version on 35mm in
1998. Unfortunately, financial difficulties forced us to put the
production on hold.
In 1999, we started to record voice-overs with German children and
actors: Hannes Jaenicke’s
(actor, Grimme award winner) voice was used for the white, Minh-Khai
Phan-Thi’s (presenter, actress) in Vietnamese for the brown
chocolate marshmallows. In the end, the film was shot with a European team in Berlin in December
2000. It has been completed in January 2001.
