The Trouble With Being Born

The Trouble With Being Born

A film by Sandra Wollner

Austria, Germany, 2020, 94'

Elli is an android and lives with a man she calls her father. Together, they spend the Summer. She shares his memories and anything else he programs her to recall. Memories that mean everything to him but nothing to her. Yet, one night she sets off into the woods to follow a fading echo. Winner of the Special Jury Prize (Encounters Section) at the last Berlin Festival,  this film by Sandra Wollner is an unsettling sci-fi with a unique approach to the fracturing relationship between technology and human nature. The story of a machine and the ghosts we all carry within us.
