ABOUT THE FILM
More About Tyttonen (The Young Girl) from Director Fabian Giessler
This is a short movie inspired by my grandmother who became ill with Alzheimerâ€™s disease and occasionally mixed up dreams with reality. This little movie portrays the ways in which people handle illness as they grow older.
I created the short film in a foreign semester in Finland in a real Finnish retirement home. It was difficult at times to work with the elderly people there but by the end of the shoot they were all very sad to see the film crew leave.
