For L’OFFICIEL Ukraine, MAX VON TREU photographed model, DJ, cosmopolitan, and musician Estella Boersma (Multipass). New in Berlin – Estella moved to the city on the Spree shortly before the global lockdown. She was styled by Alex Huber, with hair & make-up by Steffi Willmann and fashion direction by Olga Yanul.
Why Berlin? Beautiful Estrella tells glamcult : “For me, moving here made me feel like I found a place where I could choose to go from place to place or spend the whole day in the studio where you can escape the outside world. It’s the exact opposite of New York, where everything was continuously hectic. Amsterdam will always feel like home, even if I’m not living there. Yet, at this moment in my life, I feel freer in Berlin, where I can move around at my own pace and feel at ease.”

‘Generation Beziehungsunfähig’, or German for Generation Relationship Incapable, is the film adaptation of the same-titled book which was directed by Helena Hufnagel, who also wrote the screenplay together with Hilly Martinek. Appearing in the lead roles are Frederick Lau and Luise Heyer. MAX VON TREU photographed the actor and actress for the MAX cover story.
The film is about Micha who lives the life of a true bon vivant. He’s single, dates one woman after another, only to stop contacting them as soon as things get all too serious or he becomes bored. That only works for the full-time single until he meets his female counterpart Ghost. From then on, he finds himself on the flip-side of ‘diabolic’ dating. Micha, as confident as ever, still thinks he is doing everything right when he’s flirting with Ghost. But far from it – he’s being ghosted by her this time. After all, Ghost doesn’t have the slightest crush on a romantic like Micha…
‘Generation Beziehungsunfähig’ is a production by Pantaleon Films in co-production with Warner Bros Film Productions and Brainpool. Warner Bros Pictures planned to release the film in German movie theaters on March 25, 2021. ‘Generation Beziehungsunfähig’ was funded by Film- und Medienstiftung NRW, FFF Bayern, German Federal Film Fund (DFFF), German National Film Funding Institution FFA, and MDM.

Recently re-issued magazine MAX is designed for aesthetes, who can hardly warm up to the idea of lifestyle with its traditional connotations. Best-agers and Instagrammers are connected within a community which stands for new perspectives, inspiration, knowledge and credibility in all areas of life.
In the new issue, fellow actors Frederick Lau (36) and Luise Heyer (31) talk about love and their ‘Generation Relationship Incapable’. In an interview with Patrick Heidmann, they speak about the truths told in their new film. They themselves, by the way, are far from being relationship incapable. Luise is the mother of two children, and Frederick is meanwhile the father of three.
MAX VON TREU staged the shoot on location. The result is an entertaining photo spread about ‘Generation Relationship Incapable’. BLINK IMAGING was in charge of both digital support, including equipment, and subsequent post production.
‘Generation Relationship Incapable’ is the film adaptation of the same-titled book by Michael Nast, which was published in 2016. It was directed by Helena Hufnagel for production company Pantaleon Films. The story : Micha (Frederick Lau) thinks he is God’s gift to women. He’s single, dates one woman after another, only to stop contacting them as soon as things get all too serious or he becomes bored. So, he tinders his way from one woman to the next, without the slightest intention of finding someone with whom he can settle down. He’s not the only one to think this way. After all, many other members of his generation feel the same way. They just can’t do relationships – or they’re just too afraid to commit. It’s alright for Micha because he can use it as an excuse to justify his lifestyle. But his dating spree only works for the full-time single until he meets Ghost (Luise Heyer), who also thinks that the concept of committing to a relationship is outdated. From then on, he finds himself on the flip-side of ‘diabolic’ dating. Micha, as confident as ever, still thinks he is doing everything right when he’s flirting with Ghost. But far from it – he’s being ghosted this time with all the tricks in the book. Independent as she is, Ghost doesn’t have a crush on romantic Micha at all… (source: filmstarts.de//)
