Silence, observation and the absurd are the secrets behind Ilse Aichinger’s lyricism as brought to life in “Where I live”. Never before seen Super-8 films, shot by her, inspire amazement at our ability to know ourselves, and at the ways in which we find ourselves. Her perspective on alienation empowers us to stay awake in face of “all of nature and society’s attempts to lull us to sleep”.

The film takes us on a sensuous journey of seduction that opens us to Ilse Aichinger’s work. Work that stands out in the 20th century for its singularity and that yet, in its existential dimension, succeeds at being timeless.
