THE DEATH OF MY MOTHER

In deep remorse and ashamed of herself Marcelle recalls the last three days before the death of her mother. As she recalls the incidents from the arrival of the mother in the ambulance at Marcelle's house until her death, we enter Marcelle's sombre world of silence and guilt.

Director Biography - Gerrit Kuge


Gerrit Kuge was born on the 8.8.89 in Böblingen, southwestern Germany. Since 2014 he studied Media-Arts at the University of Arts and Design with the focus on film under Razvan Radulescu. In May 2019 he received his diploma for his graduation-film “the death of my mother”. In his filmic works he deals with fallibility as a central part of being human. His protagonists are often confronted with loss and responsibility – for themselves and for others –, challenges that they find hard to master. His stories often operate on the fringes of logic, as they merge aesthetic-

associative and realistic-narrative elements to create a dreamlike flow.
