PARA:DIES

Feature Film, AT 2022, digital, 76 min, OmeU

Jasmin and Lee move back to Anif in the countryside of Salzburg. Documentary filmmaker Amira accompanies them and films their relationship, gradually becoming part of a complicated three-way constellation. Elena Wolff’s feature film debut PARA:DIES is a smart docufiction and an outstandingly acted work about queer self-conception and forging of identity in times of obligatory self-expression and self-exploitation.
