What is the teaser text for your film DO YOU EVEN KNOW...?

Alexandra isolates herself. She runs away to overcome the hardship she’s suffering. Her pain was unpredictable. So is life.

What is the original idea of your film – how did it all start?

A story someone told... Valentine (actress and co-writer) and I (co-writer and director) have been moved and concerned as lovers.

Scene from DO YOU EVEN KNOW...

What was your highlight during the process of filmmaking?

The whole process has been about focussing on two things:

  • Bringing life into and light upon this tragic theme
  • Using all the cinematographic tools to serve this story. We had to be very unobtrusive and let the situation talk for itself.

If you weren't a filmmaker, you'd be…?

An organic farmer ? An Art Director maybe... ? A father already ??? I don't know, something more "hand-making"...

Is it your first time in Munich?

For me yes, but not for the movie. It has been the lucky winner of an audience award in the Bunter Hund Festival.
