In a time when Pluto is still the 9th planet of the solar system, and music tracks need to be rewind, Julianne, who knows that childhood doesn’t last long but being an adult lasts forever, refuses to grow up too quickly and to let go of her estranged friend. When her fear of the unknown manifests itself in the shape of a mysterious cosmic object, she must overcome her old self and embrace what lies ahead.
Trailer
Event Horizon was born from a desire to tell a personal yet universal story - a broken friendship - and close an old wound that had been open for too long.
Just like John Hughes, who I admire, I believe that teenagers can be as bright as some adults can be. Children films from the 80s and 90s, made me want to go on crazy adventures and travel through the world and time. Today’s films just make me want to buy toys and expensive technological devices. I want to make films that consider children not as market targets but as future adults that need essence to grow up.
Event Horizon was shot in anamorphic to allow a closeness to the main character as well as showing her surroundings in which she doesn’t seem to belong. I wanted to offer the chance for my main character to get closure and not regret a thing, because holding onto the past isn’t the right solution, when life is right ahead of us.
