Short Film I recently co-wrote and Directed.
This film is based on the true story of the mysterious "forest boy" who presented himself at Berlin City Hall in 2011. The first words he spoke were English: "I'm alone in the world. I don't know who I am. Please help me." He is believed to be 17, and to have spent the last five years sleeping on the ground in a forest. His identity is a mystery.
Because the boy speaks better English than German, local police are working with British authorities to figure who the boy is, and who should care for him. He told an English-speaking Berlin City Hall employee that his name was Ray. For years he had wandered the forest with his father, who had instructed the boy to walk to Berlin if anything happened to him.
This Project for me was "The story of a story being told"
Whether people believe Ray's story or not is up to you.
The film was shot on super 16mm Film with an Arri
Here is an article on the case if you would like to know more about Ray's story.
