COLD JOINT

documentary, 14 min, premiere:

Cold relationships make part of our lives. Called „ill emotions“ these days. Of all creatures, children alone seem to be spared the illness despite being exposed to it on a daily basis. Apparently, ill emotions are omnipresent. Acting just like any regular lethal disease, this illness takes its time. Piling up in parents‘ souls, little by little it searches its way to break through the child’s immunity until they find themselves absorbed in the world controlled by cold, ill-functioning joints, relationships in fact. The main protagonist is an eleven year old girl born to a low-class family. Raised in the harsh conditions of industrial ambiance, the little girl eventually comes to terms with the grave emotional condition her family is faced with.
