This little something has several parents. The mother is for sure the corona shutdown with all the consequences we have to accept in our lives, embracing and accepting the uncertainty even more than usual. The father is indirectly my debut project on which I am working right now. Filmmaking is a beautiful journey but you need a long breath for it as well. This super-short was created out of the need to recharge my battery during the long-term project that takes up 200% of my energy. And the third parent is an amazing team of super talented friends & colleges, who supported the idea & realization. I wanted to make something small and funny to refresh my brain, my soul and of course to show how much I miss hugging friends and to share this cinematographic embrace around the world…
