At school Luna is confronted with the sudden death of her best friend Tom and tries to deal with this shock in her own way.
This film was made at a school film project in Meißen, Germany in November 2018. Everything about it was made at school, all the persons involved are either students or teachers. The choreography was developed by an upper school student, even the main music score “Life Goes On” was composed by a teacher of our school who works as a DJ besides.
The initial idea was to shoot a light-hearted Bollywood movie with a simple plot: Boy meets girl, there’s a conflict, they find back to each other again. Happy end.
While I was writing the script I realized how the actual plot almost forced itself on me. There was no external reason for me to make a movie about death with my students, but somehow I have learned by now to follow the creative flow when writing scripts and I don’t try to push a story into a certain direction.
I approached the project weekend more relaxed than usual. During the shots the students started feeling the impact of the images of this film. This was thanks to the fantastic acting of Jana, Luca and Christina who play the main roles.
The initially planned Bollywood dance now only is a small part of the movie, so here it is in full length.
