THE DEAD AND THE LIVING
by Barbara Albert (coop99 filmproduktion (A), Alex Stern (PL), Komplizenfilm (D)
The film tells the journey of 25-year-old Sita into the dark and loaded past of her family during World War II. The journey
leads Sita from Berlin to Vienna, to Warsaw and to Romania. The Dead and the Living is a film about losing your homeland,
a film about self discovery and identity, about responsibility and hope.
