Wir sterben - We die

// documentary, 2011 //

"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." (Josephine Links)
