Directors Statement

“There are only a handful of stories that we filmmakers tell over and over again. Therefore, as a director, I am always on the lookout for other forms to tell. For a long time, I wanted to create a film that can be seen both forward and backward and only unfolds completely when seen several times. CHAOS is our attempt to understand time differently and question its linearity. My DOP, Lukas Eylandt, and I wanted to shoot a genre film for a long time and saw this as an opportunity to deconstruct film genres, tell a bank robbery without ever seeing it and mix fairy tales with gangster noir.” – Samuel Auer
