Sonja Wyss WINTERSTILTE
by Nicholas Burrough
The Netherlands, 2008, Beta SP, 70 min
In a snowed-in log cabin, widow lives with her four grown-up daughters, all with their own desires for love and intimacy. The strong Catholic faith and their mourning that has tormented them for years have condemned them to a life of chastity. Mysterious deer-men change their existence.
She is from Switzerland but has already lived in Holland for more than 15 years. She is visual artist and makes video films and installations. Her video film Grüezi wohl Frau Stirnimaa was selected in 2000 for Quinzaine des Realisateurs in Cannes. WINTER SILENCE is her first feature film.
