The Marsh Guardian
After 40 years of solitude, Elze finally breaks free from her remote farmstead.
In ‘The Marsh Guardian’, I dive into a personal level with Elze, in order to perceive the world of her despair. The decision to shoot the film from my own perspective, as an intruder or a stranger who tries to interpret the relationship between brother and sister, came from an understanding of Elze’s position towards her brother. The analysis of the inner world of Elze presents the audience with her hidden desire for liberation and the conflict between life and death, which mirrors Elze’s relationship with her cat.
