MOONMAN (MONDMANN)

MOONMAN
Scene from "Moonman" (photo © Toccata-Film)

Once upon a time there lived a man up in the silvery moon. He was so lonely that he hadn’t laughed for a hundred years. His greatest wish was to visit us humans, just once in his life. One night his dream was fullfilled and he managed to voyage down to earth on a buzzling comet. But nobody understood the poor creature. Nobody – except one...

A dreamlike adventure into the imagination of a child, based on Tomi Ungerer’s classic picture-book The Moonman.


Fritz Böhm was born in 1980 in Berlin and spent part of his childhood in the US. He shot his first film, A FRATICIDE, based on the short novel by Franz Kafka, in Prague in 2001. During his studies at the Munich University of Television & Film, he founded the production company Toccata Film together with fellow students Sven Nuri and Christoph Strunck. Together they have produced more than 15 short films and are currently preparing their first feature. MOONMAN (MONDMANN, 2006) is Boehm's graduate film as a producer and director.
