WHAT I REMEMBER

by Antoinette Zwirchmayr

synopsis

With WHAT I REMEMBER, Antoinette Zwirchmayr, a young Viennese filmmaker, seizes her family history and her own memories to build a visual and sound puzzle in 35 mm in three sensory and mysterious chapters. Two figures emerge: the father - an early bank robber reconverted into a miner in Brazil, and the grandfather - one of the greatest pimps in Salzburg. Throughout the ever-linear narrative, epochs and places collide, while a voice-over projects us from one interiority to another. Mirror games duplicate and difract the images - memories, and one progresses through the history of this unusual family in bits, guided by a curious intuition, tasting the pleasure of getting lost and decoding the secret ties between the things.
