ABOUT THE FILM:
HE SHE I addresses candidly the idea of subjective interpretation, and highlights Nietzsche’s statement ‘facts do not exist, there are only interpretations’. Carlotta Kittel interviews her parents, who had broken up before her birth, and attempts to reconstruct through their separate viewpoints a history of their failed romance. At times funny, at others wistful or even bitter, the two parents relate in intertwined progression their own perspective of the story. Creating a conversation between the two through an intelligent use of parallel editing, the film reveals a desire by each parent to manipulate the narrative and in the end a failure to do so. In search of the truth, the film highlights the difficulties of open communication and acceptance in the midst of family dynamics.
