About the Director, Gerrit Kuge
Gerrit Kuge was born on the 8.8.89 in Böblingen, southwestern
Germany. Since 2014 he studied Media-Arts at the University of Arts and Design with the focus on film under Razvan Radulescu. In May 2019 he received his diploma for his graduation-film “the death of my mother”. In his filmic works he deals with fallibility as a central part of being human. His protagonists are often confronted with loss and responsibility – for themselves and for others –, challenges that they find hard to master. His stories often operate on the fringes of logic, as they merge aesthetic-associative and realistic-narrative elements to create a dreamlike flow.
