A FEATURE DOCUMENTARY BY FRIEDERIKE GÜSSEFELD
After 20 years, our director returns to her mother’s hometown, wich she only knew from vague childhood memories and stories. Over the decades, the inhabitants have collected countless stories, with death as a recurring theme. The different perspectives come together to form narratives, uncovering ever deeper layers of the village’s past. Gossip and wisdom about life and death form a picture of life and deaths in this rural town.
This formally strictly structured documentary is a chronic of life and death, yet still trying to look forward to a promising future.
