The Stowaway

In my movie Blinder Passagier I wanted to highlight contrasts by showing how it would feel to use our senses in different ways than (seeing) people are used to. A seeing child, colourful, cheeky and loud meets a blind woman, who lives in everlasting darkness. She depends on order and structure to manage everyday life on her own. She has a different perception of the world and I was interested in examining these differences further. I wanted to see what happens when this controlled woman gets to experience the world through the twinkling eyes of a child.
