Das System des Gartens

Karen Zimmermann & Danila Lipatov
2022, Germany, 69 min

Watch this film
2020 Danila and Karen move into a terraced house and spend their time in the garden, where they have weekly telephone conversations with each other‘s mothers. Danila gets to know Karen‘s mother Ulrike from Remscheid, and Karen - Danila‘s mother Tatyana from Moscow. In between gardening, they play, idle and systematically rebel against the natural order of things and the social roles enforced on them. Despite the historical and geographical isolation, the generational gap is traversed and the reunion takes place in the artificial space of a constantly-changing garden that transcends every system imposed on it.
