Once i dreamt of Life - Animation Trailer

Animation Sequences 2D cutout 12:00 min © Mouka Filmi 2014
Animation Directed by Gregor Dashuber
"Once I Dreamt Of Life" is a feature length documentary film about suicide - a subject that people rarely want to talk about. It’s an account about one’s personal relation to suicide, but also studies suicide as social phenomena: What are the motives, warning signs and consequences? The film follows the journey of a young man, an animated character based on a real person, on his path towards suicide. The journey is described by people who’ve had encounters with suicide - parents who lost their child, young adults who considered or even tried committing suicide.
