Elfi Mikesch’s first feature length documentary Ich denke oft an Hawaii is an experimental piece on isolation, residential housing complexes, speechlessness, and the distance between Berlin and Hawaii. In an empathic and visually poetic portrait, Mikesch introduces the reality and dream world of 16-year old Carmen Rossol. The filmmaker lived next door to the Rossol family for 12 years without knowing them. The script was written together with Carmen and her family.
