This hybrid documentary takes us on a journey into a world without men. The island tradition is, that the women choose the image that will represent them on their grave after they’re gone.
Reality and subconscious mix, as the author questions: “How does it feel to have a family tree consisting only of women? What do our ancestress’ whisper from their silent portraits?” We’re following two women, traveling from the mainland to the island graveyard, to visit their Valerija.
On the journey, the author is questioning the archetype of an island woman and her own female heritage through a participatory process.
