Elisabeth Netkowa Mnatsakanjan, a poet, musician, and painter from the Soviet Union who immigrated to Vienna, now in her mid-nineties, gazes alertly into the camera: And invites the filmmaker into her private home—the archive of her own (artistic) life. A well-balanced portrait between piles of memories, manuscripts, and pictures.
