Half German, half Yugoslav, Lena grew up in Berlin and Paris. After a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford University, Lena worked in a Belgrade-based human rights think-tank devising and leading large-scale civil society projects.

She founded a theatre and film collective in Berlin, produced short films, worked as assistant director/producer for Doc en Stock/arte, and for Kloos&Co.Medien/RISE AND SHINE where she was responsible for project development and world sales. While studying toward an MA in Film Studies at Kings College London, she created the production company von.müller.film in 2009 with the aim to develop, produce and direct creative documentaries for cinema and TV. DRAGAN WENDE – WEST BERLIN will be her first feature length documentary film as director-producer.
