The Origins of Arielle: H.C. Andersen

52' (GER, ENG subs)
We embark on a literary journey to witness the life of novelist and fairytale writer H.C Andersen.

To this day, his 168 fairytales captivate their readers with a mixture of fantasy, melancholy, and hope. Along the way, we rediscover his stories and characters of timeless beauty that draw from his personal life. We show not only the genesis of his most famous stories, but also Andersen for who he was: quirky, loveable, and entertaining. We explore how much of Andersen’s personal life lies within his fairytales – who was the “Ugly Duckling” in his life, and what lies behind the unhappy “Little Mermaid?”
