Love 404

Poland | 2018 | documentary | 17 min. National competition

There are days when teenage Rena and her mother spend hours in the virtual world of social services. Yet the experience of the Internet does not bring them closer to each other, even though they live in a cramped flat. Can they find a common language to describe “their own” loneliness? Agata Baumgart films her protagonists up close and personal. The younger woman is an adolescent but she is beginning to understand that her asexuality may be a barrier in building future relations. The older woman is experiencing the second youth, fuelled by hopes provided by dating services.
