HOW TO MEET A MERMAID @ IDFA (Competition)

HOW TO MEET A MERMAID by Coco Schrijber

(2016, The Netherlands/Denmark/Belgium, 97 min., world premiere)

In How to Meet a Mermaid the sea connects the lives of Rebecca, Lex and Miguel in, on and under the surface of the water. The sea is both beauty and danger, friend and foe. Through the mood of the ocean, the audience becomes part of the doubts, sadness and courage of the protagonists who seek help in the ocean. Director Coco Schrijber also turns to the ocean for answers about her missing brother Lex, but however understanding, vigorous or tranquil the sea is, eventually it is just water and indifferent to our questions. Rebecca, Lex, Miguel and their family left behind must fend for themselves.
