Director Statement

This is the first movie made by film students, where the director has demanded from the cast and crew to stay and live on a sailing yacht for two weeks, to sail to most of the film's iconic locations using windpower only, and to not return, before the job is done.

We have filmed on multiple different islands, shot scenes on the vast ocean, hung from cliffs and basically lived the adventure, which is portayed in the movie. This is why everything looks so real!

This movie is Patrick Büchting's final film for film school. He finished his bachelor thesis while he was still 20 years old, making him probably the youngest film school graduate of Germany.
