How We Live – Messages to the Family

So Leben Wir – Botschaften an die Familie

A study in the most private ephemera of film practice in a form of letter writing. The family recordings that structure the film are like moving postcards, telling of various lives and lifepaths during the 20th century. In this way, the film not only produces a community, but also establishes a timeless togetherness, allowing generations of filmmakers to speak to one another and, via the medium of the movie screen, to us.
