Nummer Achttien – the breath of life
EXPERIMENTAL FEATURE LENGTH ART FILM BY THE LEGENDARY VISUAL ARTIST GUIDO VAN DER WERVE.
Guido has always searched for a confrontation with life through his work. A terrible accident in 2016 changed everything. The film Nummer achttien – the breath of life is a poetic self-analysis; how his inferiority complex and fear of dying eventually saved his life. His life story forms the red thread in his search for identity, while looking for the parallels in overcoming traumas, awareness, religion and depression.
