Director Statement

I wanted to create a realistic portrait of six young adults, who despite being legal of age, are driven by their childish and selfish behaviour. The short film Human Children is inspired by Dogme95 and my love of theatre. I wished to create a coming-of-age piece that explored individuals in a group dynamic. It was written and produced to be a multi-narrative film, which gave us the opportunity to create six versions of the film. Every character could be the maincharacter as they all bring their own personal dilemmas to the party, which force them to make irreversible choices that show their true colors.
