Till Death Do Us Part
Gerlinda Heywegen presented a film lecture with beautiful and penetrating as well as humorous excerpts. Inspired by the festival theme "Who Wants to Live Forever?" she took you on a filmic road trip around life, death and the desire for eternal life. The journey began in Hollywood with victims who must die so that the hero can live on. The woods in The Mourning Forest by Naomi Kawase are a place of grief and reflection. In the Russian film Mother and Son by Alexander Sokurov, a son accompanies his mother on her last journey. And what do we see? There is also laughter about eternal life or death in the film.
