Marlena Molitor | Germany 2017 | 12 Min. | OmeU

“Sure you don’t want anything? Well, it’s up to you. Let me know if you change your mind, Papa.” Getting up, making coffee, rolling cigarettes, getting warm. Zsuzsanna and Sandor have been living under a bridge in Munich for more than six months. FEBRUÁR is a sober confrontation with the antagonisms of daily life; a glimpse into a home, the nature of a companionship and the embrace of little things. An empathetic portrait about an all too common but mostly unseen reality.
