Meet the Filmmakers: EUXINE

Interview with director Tess Hutson

Meet the Filmmakers: EUXINE

Director Tess Hutson


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

The film is based on true events - 'Euxine' was a British coal carrier that sank in the Atlantic Ocean in 1874. My short film explores what may have followed for several of the crew whose lifeboat was capsized, leaving them adrift on the ocean for twenty-two days. When I first read of this story I was endlessly fascinated by the subject matter as it posed the simple (yet entirely complex) question of what being human really means.

What was your highlight during the process of filmmaking?

The overwhelming support and kindness from everyone involved.

Is it your first time in Munich? What do you expect of the city and the festival?

It will be my first time in Munich! I expect great things.
