Where Is The Friend´s Home? (Dok 12Min)

The film is shot in one day and a half on the 20th and 21st of June 2019.

There was so much energy behind this film.

It is made for the second run of the application, the entrance exam to study back then for my Master in Film Directing at Film Uni of Babelsberg Konrad Wolf.

We were given the theme of intimacy to create a short film of approximately 5 minutes within two weeks.

The idea, script, shooting, and editing had been made in 2 weeks in 2019.

Then later on we began to edit the film. Back then first I thought I might use its material for my first feature but then we realized it is a separate short film for itself.

There are a lot of stories behind this short work.

It was supposed to have its premiere in 2021 with selections that got canceled.
