Director´s Statement:

"In my work I’m often dealing with the subject of memory and special places which have a magical appeal. So for me it´s more about letting the story and characters develop out of their inner quest or their surrounding.

To be dedicated to work with people, on stories, with actors and carve out the essence - story- and visual- wise, is my great ambition."
