Take your broken heart, make it into art. Annekatrin Hendel (VATERLANDSVERRÄTER, ANDERSON, FASSBINDER) paints an intimate picture of her friend, costume designer, singer, painter, and photographer Ines Rastig (1965–2016). Hendel takes on script, directing, cinematography, and sound herself. The footage is shot in January 2016 in a singular hotel room with a view of the Baltic Sea; two months after Ines Rastig was diagnosed with lung cancer and four months before her death. A film about contradictions: the narrowness of the room and the vastness of the ocean, the dying body and the creative energy, the physical closeness and the escape to the internet. A dialog on a par with a stubborn and feisty artist, who, in her last years, communicated with the world mainly virtually.
