Director Statement

I believe, that we - as humans - recognize ourselves by remembering. This is the evidence of existing in a chronological context, which forms identity. The loss of memory can lead to a serious identity crisis. But memory hasn’t to be true implicitly as scientific research taught us: to remember is a flexible process, which always adapts to an optimized learning for the future.

People collect proofs like photographs, documents and letters to verify their memories. I follow from this an existential doubt: Can I trust memory? Who am I really? If I don't leave any traces, have I ever existed?

In this area of conflict, I am interested in man’s subjective sensations and his capability to remember, to forget, to associate and to create - consciously or not - his own Utopia.
