My grandmother, the inspiration and the main character, allows me to touch upon her own story a theme of woman and female, her roles as homemaker and housewife. Recording private situation (inside) is resulting in a documentary material which gradually loses its shape during the process and moves into fiction. She agrees to play of recording of our meetings. She doesn't fully understand the final material, but the fact that it serves the purpose of academic education, she approves and gives me permission to use it. I try to move away from clear view (and statements) and translate them into a broader context.
Form and structure are variable, four videos do not form a closed unit and leave room personal interpretation. The idea is the same, each video is related to the subject, but in a different way, recounts the relationship between me and my grandmother, the room where she lives, sometimes my role in her life and touching story of a widow who hasn't in years left the apartment on the fourth floor building without elevators, where she lives.
