Directors Statement

Follow your dreams, no matter what – even if you’re a one-legged dancer. To inspire others is our ultimate goal and reflected in every work we’ve done so far. When you see people with disabilities, the first thing that comes to mind is: „How do they cope in life?“. Malou shows that you can achieve a lot with inner strength and willpower.

With the aid of our short film’s story, our prominent cast and dramaturgic tools we intent to sensitize our audience, to take a stand for disabled people and embolden them to have the courage to pursue their dreams. We want to turn the public spotlight on the still unequal opportunities of our handicapped fellows in order to start a constructive discussion about inclusion and hopefully to contribute to a better situation.
