Familienähnlichkeit video is shown at Neuland Videofenster from 10.12.2021, Rottstraße 15 44793 Bochum

A short video about individuality and biological determination. Visual research of physical resemblance within one line of blood relatives: two sisters and their mother. Three women are physically alike yet individual. Video simply takes a close look in their state of calm trying to reenact casual gestures and facial expressions they might as well share or differ. The camera pays attention to details up close not leaving unnoticed nor nose itching nor awkward smile of the discomfort of being watched. Video is accompanied by the authors' poetic text in English in a form of subtitles, not translating little dialogues in Russian that can be heard during the video, but translating video itself from the position of a viewer. As a commentary on a difference of perception and expectations based solely on appearance which may or may not affect an actual destiny in form of self-perception, career choice and personality that is usually hidden from the public eye.
