Every moment leads to another one. To get to understand one moment, you have to know about its history, because everything has a cause and everything has an effect. FORTUNE FADED describes this principle with a journey through moments and tells a story of a fateful chain of events that ends up in fire and ashes.

Alexander Heringer was born in 1985 in Marktoberdorf. He trained and worked as a media designer. Since 2009, he has been studying Audiovisual Media at the Stuttgart Media University (HdM). He directed the short films FORTUNE FADED (2012) and HELLO MY NAME IS FACEBOOK (2013).
