SYNOPSIS

 

"Do you fear death? Don ́t be frightened..."

A boy spends hours on a busy holiday-beach.

His impressions and thoughts intertwine to a current perception, that is concerned with transience.

The cinematic essay Memento Mori aims to understand life and death as a unit and questions the fear of death.

 

 

DIRECTOR`S NOTE

 

The movie arose out of a deep feeling, when I got confronted with loss and it represents the digestion of the sudden experience that life can end in a moment. At first I wanted to use every second in my life and fullfilled it with all I could give. After a time I found out that living with a strong power could also be to much.

It is about a balance between  grabbing life with both hands and just letting life revolve.

If I  touch death in some moment, I feel that life is always present.

Although I still do not know, whether I fear about the process of dying, I believe and feel that if I embrace death,  I get fullfilled with the flow of life.

NINA SCHIENA BIOGRAPHIE

DIRECTOR & EDITOR

 

The young director -raised in Berlin, Germany-

had the early passion to play with images and sounds, to develop film ideas and implement them. In order to learn all about film, she completed the diploma study film-editing at the University "Konrad – Wolf“ in Potsdam Babelsberg.

With her dedication for making pictures, she began to implement her own film work and deepened

her knowledge of camerawork.

Having gathered a variety of film-experience she studied directing at the Film Arche e.V. Berlin Kreuzberg.

She has worked with small film teams and developed very personal short films.

Nina Schiena sensed the process of unfolding herself, but also knows what it means to produce independent films.
