Weightless

 

10 mins  | English, Romanian  | Luxembourg |  with Larisa Faber, Alexandre Hornbeck

Weightless is both a portrait and an atmospheric rendering. It seeks to depict the emotional landscape of a young woman who has lost her mother and is trying to deal with her own present and future, and by extent her own mortality.

The apartment – the blue bedroom, the narrow kitchen, the old-style living room – is her private world and the camera intrudes into it. We stand by her, watching as she tries to pay homage to her mother in the intimacy of her home.
