Kopfüber (Head First)(2016)


“In the summer of 2011, Daniel dived head first into the water. This dive turned his life inside out forever. He has been a paraplegic ever since. Conjuring up a tempest of real and animated images, the filmmaker portrays his life with this extreme experience. Because Daniel may have a broken neck, but his will to live is unbreakable. And the wheelchair he’s in may seem like an all-powerful signal of personality, but it transports very little of who Daniel really is.”  (Ralph Eue, DOK Leipzig)
