Director Statement

Nucleus is a story whose characters search for knowledge in the microcosm, as well as in the macrocosm and in themselves. So, on the one hand, we have the search in the smallest part, the atom, the judgment or primordial core that conditions and influences existence. On the other hand, we have the plane that extends beyond our horizon and makes us search in the macrocosm. We fill this space only with our hypotheses and fantasies. Therefore, the protagonist Falk seeks the comparison, to the proof of the general theory of relativity, which Arthur Eddington 1919 on the island Principe has yielded. The story should work on several levels, questioning reality, but also creating connections on a visual and playful level that have not yet been told. Thus microcosm and macrocosm are related, inside and outside, happiness and destiny, as well as time and space. Nucleus is a small compact story that can do a lot. The audience gets the opportunity to read the film on various levels. So it can see the history of interpersonal relationships, a scientist fighting with himself, as a thriller or as a media-theoretical reflection.
