At the moment I’m working in the script development of my animated documentary film project “Origin”
«Origin» is an animated documentary short film about the origins of violence. The film essay strives to objectively present solid, well researched and convincing information and interrelations. At the same time the main task of the film will entail the creation of appealing and convincing metaphorical images
Background and Intention
Violence is an omnipresent topic that concerns all of us directly or indirectly. Wars, amok runs, terrorism, suicide, domestic violence, murder, genocide, rape, social marginalisation have become, via mass media channels, our daily news. While the spiral of violence increases we often do not find an explanation of its cause. How does human violence function? Is violence a structural problem of our global culture?
To understand why all this is happening we need to understand how our human brain has evolved and to dig deep into the roots of our cultural habits and our notion of civilization.
In this film I would like to critically point out some socially and culturally accepted misconceptions about violence and raise important questions about the sense and nature of our economical, political and social system as a whole and within the context of our global economy. With means of film, «Origin» is looking for new aspects, paradoxes and insights about the phenomenon of violence.

About the film
Primitivo is a parody about human evolution. The film explores in a metaphoric way the swings and flows between the wild and the civilized inherent to our human nature and how the growing speed of things is shaping ourselves.
An automaton traveling in time on a high wheel bicycle comes to life as the ride gets faster. He tries to reach something in front of him but his efforts are useless and the truth is reveal, we discover the driving force of human evolution.
