Hi, I'm David.


Feel welcome explore my work on this website.


I am a cinematographer born in Saarland in 1994, now based between Leipzig and Berlin. My artistic work concentrates on feature-length documentaries, but I also love to bring this experience back into fictional films. I like the idea to shine a light on subjects, that are generally underrepresented in media and society.

Since 2013 I studied Cinematography at Filmuniversity Babelsberg „Konrad Wolf“, where I graduated in 2022 with the feature-length documentary „THE HOMES WE CARRY“, which started its festival journey at the German Competition of DOK Leipzig and will soon be screened at Films de Femmes (Créteil) and ACHTUNG BERLIN Festival.

In 2016/17 I've been a volunteer at Goethe Institute Maputo, Mozambique. During that time I shot my first feature-lenth film "Maputo Nakuzandza", which was shown at FID Marseille 2022, won the special price of the jury at the Festival do Rio and was part of the feature film competition of FESPACO, Africa's most important Festival for Independant Film in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso).


Right now, I'm working on the feature-length documentary „MY REVOLUTION“(AT) with director Reem Karssli and the Series "GOOD ENOUGH PARENTS" with Domenik Schuster.

Besides, I do anything else that brings fun and/or money, as long as I don't have to sell my soul. I work as a freelance cinematographer, photographer and colorist. When opporunity hits me, I also work as a director for personal projects such as music videos.


Don't hesitate to get in touch.

After being screened at Festival do Rio, FID Marseille, Woche der Kritik (Berlin), FESPACO (Ouagadougou) and Berwick International Festival, Nakuzandza now goes Lisboa and NewYork.
