Meet the Filmmakers: BLIESCHOW

Interview with director Christoph Sarow

Meet the Filmmakers: BLIESCHOW

Director Christoph Sarow


What would be the teaser text for your film BLIESCHOW?

A young boy’s struggle with an ocean of chickens, peeing, the universe and his rough cousin.

Where does the inspiration for your film come from?

I took inspiration from my childhood memories and the summers I spent at my grandfather’s farm on the isle of Rügen. And of course all the feelings I had as a young boy at this strange place.

What is your favourite film - officially and secretly?

Officially there are too many. But secretly - BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S is pretty high on the list.

What was your favorite film festival experience so far?

Ottawa International Animation Festival was definitely one of the greatest experiences. There you can find an amazing, compelling audience and lots of beautiful and weird animation movies.
