My grandmother has almost reached the end of her life; her skin became thin as tissue paper. Now it is grandma preparing her good-bye while I realize that her life and death are inseparable from mine. “we die” is an aesthetic approach to the unknown, the traces of time and our upcoming good-bye – somewhere between here and another world.
Short #2: “Ein Augenblick in Mir“, by Darja Pilz and David M. Lorenz
2011, 13 min.
Arne wants to kill himself. But once he’s standing on the chair with the rope around his neck, something unexpected happens…
