HERZ STICHT

“HERZ STICHT” confronts, in a gentle yet dauntless way, the complexities of a patchwork family and its members. The film discusses the central question of how feelings like joy and heartache are passed on over multiple generations and locations. “HERZ STICHT” raises the question in what way emotional wounds correlate with strategies of action and communication. It is a sensitive and reflected discussion about memories, sense of belonging and the tension between family ideals and actual family life.
