Satti was born in the South of East Germany to a German mother
and a Sudanese father.
He studied acting during the late 80's at the National Film
school in Babelsberg. Disillusioned by totalitarian rule and a
mass exodus to the West by his artist friends, he left communist East Berlin a few month before the Berlin wall would fall.
After a life as performance artist in Amsterdam, he returned to a united Germany to continue his work at the fringe theater.
Around the early Nineties, Satti got the travel bug and travelled
to Africa and America - spending two years on the road.
During the same time he worked as an assistant on a
variety of independent film projects produced by migrant organizations in France and England.
Inspired by trends in black film making, Satti moved to London in 1996. He graduated with a BA film degree from the London Institute (LCP) in 2000.
Back in Berlin, he wrote his first feature script with financial support from the UK Film Council and European development
fund SOURCES 2. At the same time he co-founded cyberNomads - a multi media company with a grass roots website to archive and document events and debates of Afro-German history.
Satti was part of the Talent Campus at Berlinale film in 2003 and 2008.
He signed an option deal to write and direct his first feature film in with Lichtblick Film & TV GmbH from Cologne in 2006.
Inspired by the theme of hope and change, Satti produced a feature length documentary called "GO-BAMA between Hope & Dreams" (80min) in 2009. He currently tours the festival circuit engaging with audiences and to find distribution. More information is also under: http://www.facebook.com/pages/sattiandsatti/43235564258
