2014, 18th November:
Vier danach is a documentary directed by Julia Geiss and produced by NDR (German TV) and Anne Walther - film & kommunikation.
Katharina, Marius and Malte have nothing in common except one great loss: their fathers all died due to an HIV-infected medication for haemophiliacs.
Filmmaker Julia Geiss is retracing the history of the fathers who died in silence. And she finds more than just regular indemnification from a pharmaceutical company.
Working with Julia on her film was a great experience. We started discussing her project over a year ago, before she even shot the first pictures.
Together, we developped a concept for the music and sound design of the film that evolved throughout the filmmaking process. It results in an abstract soundscape, often electronic and atmospheric but also sometimes organic, which aims at showing both sides of such a tragic story: the hard reality and the unreal consequences or the pain of the loss and the hope for the future,
The film has already been selected for the 31. Kasseler Dokfest where it was shown as Preview on November 15th and won a Special Mention !!
