A leap in time with a look ahead – 13 years after the premiere of 7 or Why I exist we meet them again: the 7 children from all over the world. How did they find their way into becoming adults?
The film shows their philosophical context on life and future of a generation between 20 and 30. When they were children, they already impressed and inspired us with their curiosity about “difficult“ questions. As young adults, they let us share their feelings and thoughts. They give us the opportunity to watch them reflecting, and “in the process of the gradual production of thoughts while speaking“ (Heinrich von Kleist). That‘s what makes it so fascinating. Then as now.
