film director

«I constantly try to reinvent myself. It’s a mindset that helps me keep my vitality and stay relevant. Some years ago I developed an interest in bio-hacking and life extention. But in doing so, I encountered a dilemma: if we live longer, we will also hold onto our power and privilege for longer, leaving no space for the next generations. This dilemma is what sparked the idea for Breeder. We cultivated it, exaggerated it. And turned it into a story about a woman’s fight against the people in power, who literally consume their own offspring in order to become young again.»
