Amina Handke 1h 25min

Original title : Mein satz

Directed by : Amina Handke

My Sentence (2022) is a fiction by Amina Handke, selected in the “Competition Prix SAUVAGE” section of the 19th edition of the Paris European Film Festival, Europe by Europe.

Synopsis :

The eighty-year-old actress Libgart Schwarz (played by herself) suddenly loses her use of language while rehearsing for a film version of the play Kaspar. The play is based on the historic figure of Kaspar Hauser, a young man who grew up locked in a room with no social contact or education. Just as its protagonist, My Sentence does not fit in: not in the usual Festival or Film categories or genres. Although originally in German, it is about the universal politics of language and age discrimination.



“Considering the shoulders of giants we’re standing on – the foundation of any culture – it seems obvious for an artist to deal with questions of influences within family structure”
Nathan Letoré, FID Marseille.
