Captured in the Past


«My biggest dream is to be 14 years old again. I wouldn’t do everything better but a lot of things differently.» I had the possibility to meet Dirk Muchow in Berlin and learn more about his dramatic life and past. Since he’s 16 years old Dirk interferes with the law and ends up in prison over and over again. In a few months he will be leaving open prison and hopes to get his life in order now. Muchow’s story shouldn’t downplay crimes but rather show that we shouldn’t judge people only based on their actions. Because there’s always two sides to every story.
