24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Stitched-together photographs become a drama in which memories are tangled, pierced by holes, and deformed in order to hide the seams of a story of falling in love, being in love, and the end of love, and to inspire further stories in which a family picture reflects norms of behaviour and stereotypes associated with the experience of love.
“Relationships with loved ones are always complicated tangled threads. Fragile and solid, addictive and lonely, forming beautiful patterns and painful collisions. The film is an attempt to transmit that vortex into an apprehensible form.” P.-R. Jaik
Pille-Riin Jaik (1991) was born in Estonia but lives and works in Austria, where she is currently studying the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Her diverse range of work is focused around sculpture, installations and photography. She has also shot three short films that relate to her performance art and other artistic creation.
