2015 Switzerland DOC / EXP 15 '

I’ve made an essay film! I tried to answer the questions I have as a young adult. What does art mean to me? How is art connected to my family? And who am I in between? Using only home videos from my family, adding my improvised comment to it, a light essayistic film was born.
