Director Statement

With the movie ‘Brunch’ we wanted to create an alternative to the all so familiar story; a couple visits another in their home and some obstacle occur, which in the end splits them up. The obstacles are usually typical to white people of the bourgeoisie class. We asked ourselves the question: what actually separates the lives of queer and straight people? The question of children. And so our wish was to create a story in the usual setting, but one that was able to accommodate a queer narrative.
