Interview with Dietrich Brüggemann, director of Stations of the Cross

How would you describe the film?

It’s hard to say. I guess you could describe it in many ways. On the one hand, it’s a story about religion and coming of age. It’s about a young girl growing up and dealing with her own individuality. In her particular case, she not only struggles with the usual difficulties of adolescence, but also a very strict religious background. On the other hand, it’s also a story about family itself. It raises questions about what demons we have and how we raise our kids. On a technical level, of course, we use the 14 stations of the cross as an allegory for what happens to Maria, how she follows the path of Jesus.
