Lena Maria Held & Marcus Nebe 29:59, Germany
A knitting workshop in a small German town brings together women from vastly different backgrounds and origins in the expressive joy of creating their own sustainable clothing out of donated knitware. With the purpose of a shared creative goal, they discover what unites them, forging meaningful friendships in the process.
For Lena Maria Held, a sociologist and author interested in the connections between art and society, Tangled up in You is her debut film as a director. Marcus Nebe has already worked as a media artist and cameraman on several documentaries and installations dealing with protest and resistance.
