      Jeanine Lang was born on the 22nd of February 1999 in San Jose, California. Whether it’s due to the geographical proximity to Hollywood or her boundless love for stories, she already felt a great fascination for the world of film and television as a child. At the age of ten, she shot her first short film and fell in love with filmmaking even more. After graduating from high school in 2017, she completed several internships on different film sets and at the theatre and was also awarded the Baden-Württemberg U20 Poetry Slam Champion. In the same year, she began her studies in Audiovisual Media at the Stuttgart Media University, which she completed in autumn 2022. In recent years, she has worked as a director, scriptwriter and actress on different film productions.
