Why Is The Sky Blue?

The film is a reflection on the many mysteries of the universe. It asks questions as it explores how the human mind tries to conceptualise the world in order to make sense of things it can't explain.

It was shot in my hometown, a small village in the South of Germany, where I spent my childhood and adolescence. A place where my imagination had free reins.

Director Statement

In 2020 I found myself in a place of reflection and re-evaluation. I had just finished my one-year acting training that had followed a 3-year long physics degree. It was spring and, there was a national lockdown. The result was that my mind felt taken captive and was looking for refuge in the beautiful countryside of southern Germany.

I wanted to embrace simplicity and solely used my iPhone for filming and recording sound.
