Schümann is perhaps best known for his outstanding performance in 2016’s queer coming-of-age drama Die Mitte der Welt (Centre of My World). 

The German-language film from Jakob M. Erwa delivers a twist that’s sure to stay with you long after the credits roll, based on the Andreas Steinhöfel novel The Center of the World, and made its WA premiere at the Perth Queer International Film Festival in 2017.

Schümann is currently on the big screen in the cinema adaptation of Capcom’s Monster Hunter video game series with Milla Jovovich, and is set to hit Netflix in the dystopian sci-fi drama Tribes of Europa in 2021.
