Director Statement

Originally a biologist with professional experience in basic research, Tobias Gaisbauer is currently studying photo design at the University of Applied Sciences in Munich. His strong power of observation help him to give his creative works a decisive direction. He is enthusiastic about storytelling in moving images and in photography and about stories in general. Following the film project Mamma Mia! with passion was the logical consequence of indirect experience of discrimination in the professional world and in everyday life.
