European premiere

In an outdoor nursery based in the woods, children create their own individually constructed worlds and can test out the boundaries of reality. The beauty and the challenges of growing up become visible in the way they perceive their environment and interact with each other. A dry log and a bunch of branches become a plane that will take off to an unknown land. The woods become the place where the normal rules and regulations of society come to a halt and where the children transform the surroundings with their play into magic.

Anne Frances Ewert.
“In August 1986 I was born in Villingen, Germany. From an early age, drama and film have fascinated me and I gathered some acting experience in different theatres. However, I soon realized that I wanted to become involved in filmmaking instead. After my graduation from secondary school in 2006 I took a gap year in which I participated in a short film course in London and completed an internship on a professional film set in Berlin. As I have always been very interested in different cultures, I decided to study in Scotland rather than in my familiar environment. In 2007 I started to study the ‘Film and TV’ course at the Edinburgh College of Art with the focus on making documentaries and graduated this June 2010.”
