Sonne Sonne Sonne

A Film by Leonel Dietsche


Sun Sun Sun shows humans in their real surroundings. An attempt to preserve and condense their fleeting everyday life. Impressions of a day of an addict’s monotonous life, always with the same cycle of running, finding money, gambling and taking drugs. A restless person, who can’t access himself anymore and who is trapped in his addiction, finally loses awareness of his environment. In the end his indifference has disastrous consequences.
