Meet the Filmmakers: ALPHA-BOY

Interview with director Alexander Löwen

Meet the Filmmakers: ALPHA-BOY

Director Alexander Löwen


Write a one-sentence teaser text for your film ALPHA-BOY.

17-year old Matthias seems to find the solution to all his problems: Pick-Up Artists.

Which film was the first to deeply impress you?

Not sure... As a kid "Harry Potter", as a youngster "eXistenZ" and "Funny Games".

A new TV series about studying film needs a title – which would you choose?

„Hope & Damnation“

 Scene from ALPHA-BOY

If your film was an animal, what animal would it be?

Probably a small blue peacock

What do your grandparents think you do as a job?

I actually think they would understand the concept of filmmaking if they were alive, as they were always interested in what I do.

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

I would follow my second passion – music! – and study conducting.

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

I’ve been living in Munich since 2015 and I plan on doing so for a long long time. :)
