The Radicalization of Jeff Boyd

Director’s statement

“This is my first feature film as a director. I tried to bring out the essence in each actor respectively character and to stay truthful to the moment. Important to me was also the logical aspect of the story being told while trying to always keep the tension so to speak alive. All has to make sense, be believable, as it would be the real life. And it becomes the real life with weaknesses, vulnerabilities, inner thoughts and objectives. Another important aspect to me was to package all in a minimalistic setting. Last but not least, to wrap it in musical themes which tell the underlying emotions, thrives and drama.”

“The film exposes the dilemmas in life about the wrong and right choices we make, sticking to one and wanting more which eventually contradicts the law of life we all have experienced, like greediness, illusions and unrealistic dreams. Different interests collide, as we see it only our way, until they clash, each having their own history: family matters, financial independence, wanting to change the world and looking for the easy way out. Until we wake up and realise that it’s too late…”
