A life without cinema is possible, but pointless. True to this motto, the Gregors have been travelling all over the world since 1957 to find unusual films and bring them to Berlin.

The life’s work of this unconventional couple.

Stillleben DEU 2021

However, she does not see the faults in him, but in herself. The film is told in the form of a parallel montage. While the past documents the course of the relationship, Liv recapitulates her experiences in the present and tries to come to terms with them. A film about domestic violence processed by a young woman in the form of a still life.
