FREDDA MEYER shortfilm

Katharina is clinic clown Fredda Meyer. At work in the children's hospital, her child Moritz, who was suffering from cancer, grew dear to her heart. Moritz will soon die. Fredda stays and is there for the parents, for the carers, cleaning staff and for Moritz. She makes fun when nobody can laugh anymore. She cries clown tears when everyone is frozen. Fredda breaks the taboos and conventions of how we deal with death.

After the first short film MARINA, werkgruppe2 is producing another short film based exclusively on interviews.
