Director Statement

With “Postludium” I wanted to tell a story about redemption and letting go.
I wanted to explore the complicated relationship between Joachim and his Father. It shouldn’t be “in your face”, but instead tell the story in a subtle way. I wanted the audience to feel the distance and differences between a Father and his Son, rather than paying a lot of attention to informations and circumstances. I was hoping to create feelings, that people would be able to relate to around the world - told in a delicate way.
