OVER THE YEARS, NADINE HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN A VARIETY OF MEDIA PROJECTS, FROM A PIONEERING CLASSICAL MUSIC LABEL, TO TV SHOWS ON INDIA’S NATIONAL TELEVISION, TO AN INTERVIEW SERIES OF TECH ICONS ON THEIR PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE, AND INTERVIEWS ON INNER PEACE FOR THE DESMOND TUTU PEACE FOUNDATION.
CURRENTLY, SHE IS WORKING ON EXQUISITE DREAMS, A FEATURE EXPERIMENTAL DOCUMENTARY ON THE UNIVERSALITY OF DREAMS.
Indeed, cultural differences abound, but bellow that thin layer, one can hear similar themes in dreams, no matter the country or culture. They are a most powerful and mesmerizing clue to the human psyche's universality.
Nadine experienced this consistently in her dreamwork with people around the world, from Mongolian nomads to Indian illiterate farmers & jet-setting billionaires, from French philosophers to Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, and beyond. A few examples: dreams of flying or falling, of being chased and unable to escape, of losing control over one's vehicle, of missing an exam or a flight, of being barefoot or naked in public, of being pregnant or giving birth and so much more. They illuminate inner realities, they reveal hidden anxieties, latent desires, and untapped potential. When deciphered in depth, they provide precious and unparalleled inner guidance. Pioneer psychologist Carl Jung used to say, "an unattended dream is like a letter from God left unopened".
Following a creative encounter with famed director and set designer Christine Jones (American Idiot, Spring Awakening etc.) and accomplished producer Jamie Gordon (Half the Sky, A love song for Bobby Long etc.), Nadine decided to make an artistic documentary on dreams - a poetic journey into oneiric realms from one person, country, and culture, to another.
Planned release date: 2021
A FEW WORDS ON PREVIOUS PROJECTS :
THE INNER PEACE INTERVIEW SERIES WITH THE DESMOND TUTU PEACE FOUNDATION
Inner Peace means something different for every human being. Without it - or a semblance of it - how can we speak of peace between people, let alone peace between nations? Inner Peace as a fundamental building block of global peace is the cornerstone of the Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation initiative, Peace*3. Its goal is to teach one-million people (teenagers and college students especially) the transformative power of peace, through live and digital events.
To inspire and trigger those dialogues, the Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation asked Nadine Kreisberger to conduct a series of interviews with personalities from around the world, on the meaning of inner peace - how they achieve it, what challenges it, how it impacts their relationship to others and to the world.
People who participated include His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra, ABC News anchor Dan Harris, director Louie Schwartzberg, President of Mauritius Prof. Gurib, fashion icon Marissa Berenson, peace activist Scilla Elworthy, actor Taye Diggs and others.

DECODING THE SOUL OF SILICON VALLEY
At a time when technology is transforming our lives and societies in exponential and incalculable ways, Nadine Kreisberger decided to explore the minds and beliefs of the pioneers and entrepreneurs spearheading those changes. Who are they (for real) and what do they think?
To answer those questions, Nadine embarked on an interview series with key figures of the tech world, from founding fathers Vinton Cerf, Andy Bechtolsheim, and Bill Draper, to trail-blazing entrepreneurs and investors such as Reid Hoffman, Peter Thiel, Evan Williams, Craig Newmark, Nathan Myhrvold and Tony Fadell, to leading researchers and academics.
This series (still to be released in podcast or print format) is called Decoding the Soul of Silicon Valley (DSSV). Major players in the tech world are extensively covered in the media, but the focus tends to be on fast-moving business and tech developments. DSSV goes deeper. It seeks to provide a window into the life philosophies of extraordinary people who are shaping our world. And to understand what is the future they are creating for us.
The impact of their work can be seen in what we eat, how we can control our children’s genes, how long we will live, how and where we work, how we communicate with strangers and loved ones, and the possibility of losing control over machines. How do those who imagine and create new realities view issues such as human nature, privacy, mortality, and artificial intelligence, and how do those views affect how they act and what they create?
AAJ SAVERE, MORNING SHOWS ON DOORDARSHAN, INDIA'S NATIONAL TELEVISION
During her years in India, Nadine anchored a number of shows on Doordarshan, Indian's national television (the only one reaching all cities and villages of the country). Some where live conversations with the public on psychological themes. Others were one-on-one interviews with personalities from the arts, business, politics, literature and so on.
