A fantastic, multilayered, uneasy noir science fiction film, awarded the Great Diagonale Prize Feature Film 2020: Elli is an android and lives with a man she calls Papa. They drift through the summer, swimming in the pool during the day, and in the evening he takes her to bed with him. She makes him happy, that's what she's there for. He created her from a memory. For her, it's just programming she follows - deep into the woods one night, chasing a fading echo. The story of a machine and the ghosts we all carry within us. (DIAGONALE)

"This highlight from the Berlinale Encounters series features a filmmaker who, with just her second feature-length film, ventures into much riskier territory than most German-language filmmaking is capable of."
