Morgen irgendwo am Meer

Patrick Büchting

Despite their strained friendship Konrad manages to convince Romy to go on a shared trip to the ocean during their summer holidays. When Romy’s friend Julian and the unknown Nele join them during their road trip Konrad begins to fear the trip was a bad idea. Meanwhile, the others ask themselves one thing: Why does Konrad actually want to go to Lisbon?

Director Patrick Büchting studied at the Filmhochschule Darmstadt. Morgen irgendwo am Meer is based on Adriana Popescu’s novel of the same name and, among other things, was created with the help of a crowdfunding campaign.

About the Director

Patrick Büchting was born in Frankfurt am Main in 1998 and grew up in Bonn. He started studying "Motion Pictures" at Hochschule Darmstadt in 2015, followed by two simultaneous Master's degrees "Leadership in the Creative Industries" at Hochschule Darmstadt and "Film" at Fachhochschule Dortmund. He works as 1st and 2nd assistant director parallel to his studies. "Tomorrow Somewhere by the Sea" is his debut film as a director.

The Director About the Film

"Tomorrow Somewhere by the Sea" is a film in which young people can relate and see themselves. I know exactly what it's like to have no plan about where life after high school graduation will take you, and I want to stage that feeling realistically. I can't solve the problem of disorientation for other people, but I can create characters who are in a similar situation to spark conversations about the future.
