Two girls who couldn't be any different to each other go on a journey to find a beach.

Queen and Lionheart

Queen and Lionheart is a story about two friends, who couldn't be more different in their personalities. Ronja is shy, organized and quiet, while Quinn is wild, crazy and caring. Together they make a funny but functioning team. When Ronja keeps having mysterious dreams about her past, Quinn takes the lead and organises a journey. They make the move to find a beach but on the way they learn a lot about themselves.

The story Behind the Film

The greatest thing about being a filmmaker is working in a team. You can multiply your creativity and support each other. We all worked on films together before and now our gradfilm is coming up - the last big step before finishing filmschool.

For me, the writer and director, it has always been important to use my voice through the films I make and tell a message. I wanted to write and film a female driven story in a mostly male centred genre - the buddy movie. Our two protagonists are not just good or bad - they are thriving, dangerous, loving, mysterious and real.

It is important for us to tell the story of female character for a broad audience, something that everyone can enjoy. To create characters that everyone, boy or girl, can relate to.
