Bring me the sea!

SPACER

Between verbal clashes and blackmailing brinksmanship, a crusty old landlocked sea captain and his soccer-rowdy caregiver share their passions, lives and dreams. The command, “Bring me the sea!” must now become the youth’s anthem.

-MJS, San Francisco International Ocean Film Festival

Sweet Sea Breeze – or Süße Seeluft in german – is the bachelor project of Thomas Hessmann and me. The film took one year in production, ran in over 25 film festivals worldwide and won over 10 awards.
