Frederik Obermaier has contributed to several documentaries - among others to "The dubious power of the consultants": a film about the consultancy firms PwC, KPMG, EY and Deloitte, which won the renown German TV-Award 2020


The book "The Ibiza Affair", co-authored by Obermaier and his colleague Bastian Obermayer, laid the groundwork for a Sky Original on their exposure of dubious practices of the former Austrian vice-chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache.


Obermaier and his work have also been featured in several international documentaries:


BEHIND THE HEADLINES (Documentary 2021 - Director: Daniel Sager)


"Behind the Headlines is a grippingly personal look at the complex forces exerted on democracy's fourth estate" (HOT DOCS Toronto 2021)

"Hinter den Schlagzeilen - Behind the Headlines is a documentary that works like a thriller." (Avisualzine.come)


"One of the most gripping insights into journalistic work ever captured on film in this country." (





THE PANAMA PAPERS (Documentary 2018 - Director: Alex Winter)


"The Panama Papers serves as a reminder of the important work reporters do in fighting abuses of power and the way that work is evolving in an increasingly fractured global landscape." (Los Angeles Times)


"The Panama Papers is a lively and level-headed exposé, but it's also a moral inquiry into how the top echelong is now united, structurally and spiritually, in robbing the rest of us blind." (Variety)
