Director Bio

At the young age of 20, Daniel Bertram directed the Anti-Racism-Spot for the Fifa World-Cup 2006 with national team players from Germany, USA and Albania. His Social-Spots were broadcasted in more than 70 countries worldwide. Until the Edge of the World is his debut film and diploma film at the University of Applied Science and Arts, Hannover.

Director Statement

I wanted to make a film in which the audience becomes a silent observer of a world dominated by grief and loss. My vision was a film in which we immerse ourselves in the thoughts of the characters, to a metaphorical, visual and acoustic dimension, where we slowly begin to realize on whose mind we are.
