Experiencing Interruptions?

Ihre Geister Sehen

An art film starring Sandra Hüller - about a family secret and dealing with trauma and psychosis.

The audio-visual project "Ihre Geister Sehen" tells of Anna's psychological injury. In the radio play as well as in the art film, she remembers her mother's words, the birth of her daughter, her love for her husband and things that were initially hidden. Courageously, clearly and sensitively, Anna speaks of trauma and shows how close and how foreign the world and her own family can be at the same time. How does it feel when you can no longer cope with the world?
