Have you ever heard of Jacominus Gainsborough? Not? Never mind. He’s a little rabbit, born sometime, but it doesn’t really matter. He lived a life, and that life is worth telling. Like any (love) life, by the way (AUGUST AND THE HARE’S EARS & LOVE LIFE). But annoyingly, in life one also suffers defeat, loss and setbacks. (ALL THE EVIL OF THE WORLD & FROM MY LIFE & EDGY) All this is part of everyday life (WESTEND). The important thing is to remain confident (BE GOOD TO YOU) and be sure that after bad times come better ones again.

The alarm clock goes off. First thing in the morning you grab your phone and the flood of selfies framed by Likes and Hashtags begins. In this documental animation film young adults tell us personal stories from their experiences with social media and it’s impact on their self-perception. The common practice of editing photos and specifically staging and percepting the female body is questioned.

Dear Life
Germany 2020, color, 29 min, OV, Engl. sub
Director: Julia Schmidt
Production: Julia Schmidt
Between documentation and performance, the story of an ordinary couple is told on the basis of their estate found by chance. Through their old video magnifier, the two lives unfold in form of letters, photos, brochures and a cassette. In 1952 Günter writes the first letter. He has Traude’s contact from a dating agency. Hundreds of letters follow and yet one only gains insight into part of the relationship; moments spent apart. It is an exploration of two lives, artificially constructed from objects left behind, illustrating how the unremarkable becomes remarkable through the intimacy of an everyday love story.
