ELECTROBOY tells the breathtaking true life story of a young man who leaves his claustrophobic Swiss surroundings for the wide world in search of fame and recognition. In a series of success stories he reinvents himself time and again, changing settings and careers like other people change their shirts.

Director's Statement

Why this movie? In order to find answers to the question of who is behind the iridescent façade of this elusive, multi-talented glamour boy. Who is Florian Burkhardt? Daredevil, artist, or imposter? Phoenix or fallen Icarus? The cinematographic journey with Florian led us to an entirely different place than expected.
