Prinzip Mensch

A Film by Marco Gadge

Synopsis

The beauty of autumn has arrived in full force once again. Out in the retirement home garden, Hans is enjoying the last rays of sunshine with his son, Peter. Hans is happy with his little family, and would be able to the approaching eve of his life with contentment… if it weren’t for one old matter that he’d much rather forget.

The Human Principle is a film about the temporary absence of morality, and raises the question of what actually makes us the summit of creation.

The shortfilms and documentaries, that he created over the years, have screened at over sixty film festivals around the world. The short feature „The Package“ won - among other awards - the main prize of the ECU Paris and the gold medal Brno.
