Screen can reveal the first trailer for German filmmaker Hermann Vaske’s documentary Why Are We Creative? ahead of its world premiere in Venice Days.

The resulting documentary features some 50 candid interviews with David Bowie, Quentin Tarantino, Ai Weiwei, Björk, Wim Wenders, Philippe Stark, Yoko Ono, John Hegarty, David Lynch, Yohji Yamamoto, Damien Hirst, Angelina Jolie, Nobuyoshi Araki, Tarantino, Bono, Nick Cave, Neo Rauch, Stephen Hawkins, the Dalai Lama, Peter Ustinov, Marina Abramovic, Diane Kruger, Julian Schnabel, Jimmy Page, Vivienne Westwood, Takeshi Kitano and many others.
Celluloid Dreams is handling international sales. Vaske’s company Emotional Network Production produced the documentary with the support of Hessenfilm und Medien, Deutscher Filmförderfonds DFFF and ZDF 3Sat. Rise and Shine has taken German distribution rights to the film.
