Give Me Back My Own Picture Perfect Memory!
LuiseDonschen, 2012, 25′, HD/DV/Super 8 color
While my father created a picture archive of my childhood, my grandmother destroyed the family photo albums just before her death. Stuck between these extremes, I venture out to question old pictures, to produce new ones and to find a perspective. My journey takes me to East Berlin, Poland and through Hamburg. This documentary deals with the shape of memory, the ease of forgetting and last not least, making films.
The Photographer’s Wife
Karsten Krause & Philip Widmann, 2011, 29′, HD/Super 8 color
GertiGerbert was photographed by her husband Eugen over a period spanning more than forty years. Besides the obligatory family photographs, from their wedding day until his death Eugen took countless pictures of Gerti: in her underwear, in homemade summer frocks, or completely naked; on the beach, in the woods, in the car, or on the floor at home. Using the Gerberts’ picture archive, interviews with Gerti, and Eugen’s notes, the film looks at what remains of life and love at the end.
Languages: Films are in German, with English subtitles only, no Vietnamese.
