Synopsis | Cast & Crew | Technical Information
The five-year-old girl Flo cannot understand the condition her father is in. In order to convince Flo that her father is not gone her mother Julia tries to explain his condition. “He is with us but also far away at the same time”. But what exactly does “far away” mean? Flo’s never ending questions drive Julia to create a story about her father’s whereabouts as a last resort.
There is this picture. Framed at the end of the Hospitalcorridoor. „Our Moon“. Flo likes the idea of it. It fits into her childlike spirit – her father on the moon. Only for a certain period of time. From now on Flo starts to create her own world.
I wanted to create a movie where the audience is a silent observer of a world that is dominated by sorrow and loss. My vision of that movie was for the observer to immerse themself in the thoughts of the characters on a metaphorical, visual and acoustic level, where they slowly start to realize in which thoughts they are in.
