Director Statement

With "Another Sunny Day" I wanted to make a film that touches the audience and leaves them with an emotional connection to a person with albinism - living in a very sunny country.
One morning I drove back home from the gym. The sun started rising above the horizon. It was bright. I didn't have any sunglasses and the visor in my car was broken, so I had to just brave it. In that moment while evading the blinding rays of the sun, I tried to imagine how a person who has no pigmentation must feel. Especially in this country, where the sun is almost always present. And so the idea for "Another Sunny Day" was born.
After that early morning drive I made contact with the Albino Care organisation and met the protagonist Paulus for the first time. I spoke to him about wanting to make a film that gives a different perspective on sunshine in this country, and immediately he came on board and shared his experience. From the exchanges with Paulus I developed the guiding script that would become the non-fiction film "Another Sunny Day."
