Documentary - in development
We follow the physician Sophie Tegetthof, the costume designer and cultural artist Aino Laberenz, and one further
protagonist in their everyday lives in Berlin and abroad. We draw parallels between the places, the experiences and
the respective execution of their work. How do priorities in work shift and which effects does this have on the
protagonists as humans? We contrast their experiences, compare and show interrelations without evaluating our

and places of transit that we want to capture and interview our protagonists.
