Veni Vidi Vici
The Maynards and their children lead an almost perfect billionaire family life. Amon is a passionate hunter, but doesn’t shoot animals, as the family's wealth allows them to live totally free from consequences.

«Who is going to stop these people?»
In their cinematic works, Daniel Hoesl and Julia Niemann consistently focus attention on capital and the way its power derails efforts to achieve social equality. Their protagonist in VENI VIDI VICI is an elegant billionaire, a devoted family man, a cold-blooded killer. In the world he has created for himself, there is nothing to prevent him from maintaining a permanent, shining appearance – because laws that apply to everyone have been suspended for him.
