What would you be if you weren’t a filmmaker?

A therapist.

Is this your first visit to Munich? What do you expect from the festival?

It's not my first visit, but I have a feeling it will be nothing like the Munich I've seen before. I'm really excited to meet and listen to creative people and watch beautiful films that will make me feel and think new things.
