Sybille Bauer’s films tend to be confrontations with unpleasant and awkward situations. Her work is highly intimate, featuring glimpses of her private life such as tape recordings of her grandmother and the diary of her deceased father. She plunges into a pool of human emotions and experiences with a sensitive and
feminist approach. (Victoria Windtner)
