PARALLEL LIVES

ECTE XP

by Frank Matter 32

The stories of a handful of people who were born on the same day as the filmmaker – on June 8, 1964 – but in entirely different locations and under entirely different circumstances. The biographies enter into mutual relationships, generating points of contact, contradictions, reflections, and interactions. The film focuses on questions of cultural and social identity, will and fate, individual life and collective values.
