We’re rolling! The “Dürr Challenge” makes its premiere
Together with the Baden-Württemberg Film Academy, Dürr presented awards to three teams of students for their short films at Ludwigsburg’s Caligari arthouse cinema. As part of the “Dürr Challenge” competition, the company had selected the three teams among numerous applicants and sent them to Detroit, São Paulo, and Shanghai. Their task was to create documentaries on life and work in the three cities.
