Film Info: Cousin Cousine

Cousins (Cousin Cousine)

Scene from "Cousins" (photo © Maria Mohr)

Cousins. Words between chairs. Voice to the piano. Fingertips grope sense. Bridges too high. Personal collage about a hidden and hiding love.

“The film convinces by its rhythmic montage of images and sounds, combining documentary and fiction material in an unusual way. Autobiographic fragments form a poetic picture of a 'forbidden love'.” (Jury statement, Oberhausen 2005)

Maria Mohr was born in 1974 in Mainz. She studied Architecture from 1994-1998 in Darmstadt and Paris. Since 2005, she has been studying Experimental Media Design at the Berlin University of Arts.
