Dec 20 On Monday, Maximilian Brückner participated in the "Living Advent Calender - Munich artists for refugees" of the Munich Heilig-Geist-Kirche, together with director Christain Stückl (Full story with picture), and yesterday he presented a young Iraqi refugee, representing the refugees and asylum seekers in Munich, with Christmas presents to pass on to all of them (Full story with picture).
Dec 17 Photos from yesterdays premiere of "Tannbach" at the Sony Center in Berlin. Max did not attend (due to a back injury which prevents him from travelling or appearing on stage untill at least February) but his younger brother Florian was there - his part in this 3-part mini series for German TV network ZDF is way larger than the role of Max is. Others in attendance were director Alexander Dierbach, producers Max Wiedemann, Quirin Berg and Gabriela Sperl, and the actors Jonas Nay, Henriette Confurius, Nadja Uhl, Heiner Lauerbach with wife Viktoria, Martina Gedeck, Alexander Held, Maria Dragus, Ronald Zehrfeld and Ludwig Trepte.

Dec 3 On Nov 23 'Trachten Brückner' held "Junge Leid, Altes Handwerk", a fair for traditional costume and craft on their grounds in Antwort. Of course Max was attending, both as a model for a hat on a photo, and also in person. More pictures from the event.
Nov 30 On Friday, Nov 28 Maximilian Brückner was one of the 160 guests at the annual ARD advent dinner hosted by Volker Herres, program director of the tv station Erstes Deutsches Fernsehen at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof in Munich to celebrate a successful business year. Other guests included Ulrike Folkerts, Simone Thomalla, Dietmar Bär, Udo Wachtveitl, Miroslav Nemec, Michaela May, Jutta Speidel, Janina Hartwig, Henning Baum, Heiner Lauterbach, Jenny Jürgens, Oliver Berben, Kai Pflaume, Jörg Pilawa and others. Pictures with Max from the event.
Nov 17 We'll have to wait quite a while for new big screen movies with Maximilian Brückner, because all he has filmed since spring 2013 is for German & Austrian televison. And according to a recent e-mal from his agency, no movie is scheduled in the near future. He'll be in a new play about "Siegfried" - the guy from the Nibelungen Saga, written by Feridun Zaimoglu and developed for Max by the Munich Volkstheater, that will premiere in March 2015.
Nov 9 In an article about the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall on Nov 9, Al Jazeera America also briefly mentions "Tannbach": [...] German public-service television station ZDF created a divided village in Besno, in the Czech Republic. Filmed on this set, a new miniseries, "Tannbach," an early Cold War-era family drama due out in January, is meant to ride the wave of ZDF's success with the World War II miniseries "Generation War," released last year.
But in the midst of all these reconstructions and anxieties around them, we have lost sight of the Iron Curtain that didn't fall, the so-called prayer wall, on the border between the former West Germany/Bavaria and Czechoslovakia. [...]

The production company W&B Televison has updated their website with some set pictures, but none of Max.
