Der Regenwurmsammler

A man in his mid forties has lost his wife and kid during an accident. His weak mental state forces him to collect earthworms.

Film notes

Prostomium is a movie about loss and how cope with it. My goal was to make a personal film, that is one of the saddest attempts to loosing your love of your life. Felt as I was cut in pieces after the break-up, I was reminded of a childhood memory. You cut an earthworm in two pieces ( one third and two thirds) only the bigger piece survives and regenerates. That's excactly as I felt. Being a fan of Korean cinema, we tried to capture this emotion in haunting images that will stay with you for a long time.
