Between the shade of the cottage and the sun of the garden, a young woman spends her summer days almost always alone. Her mobile phone provides some company, as do the rare visitors that stop by. The filmmakers show us Beatrix through such an intimate gaze that we can only speculate about its staging. What results is a physical and gestural portrait of a young woman, heir to the feminist ennui of Chantal Akerman's cinema.

Milena Czernovsky (1993, Austria) is currently studying scenography at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. Her fields of work range from stage and set design to script writing and directing. Her works were shown at theater, film and art festivals. Lilith Kraxner (1995, Austria) started to experiment with analogue film throughout an education at Friedl Kubelka School for Independent Film in Vienna. Currently she is studying video and video installation at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Their film won the Jury Prize at the Vienna International Film Festival (59th Viennale).
