Samuel Häde, born in 1993, works as a freelance journalist and documentary filmmaker in Berlin. His interest in humanitarian emergencies and world political events developed during a three-year journey through countries such as Afghanistan, Iran, India, Tajikistan and the Philippines.
With his travels and a diploma in film and television from one of Australia's leading film schools, Samuel developed his own cinematic signature. Today he is part of funk's Y collective (ARD & ZDF). In 2020, he released his feature-length debut "Mit dem Esel durch Afghanistan" in collaboration with NDR on ARD Mediathek.
In addition to a strong focus on human fates in crisis areas, Samuel also reports on social and socio-critical topics. With his commitment to GAFCA (German Association for Central Asia), Samuel also uses his skills as a volunteer in development aid.
