A woman's voice and a man's voice speaking in unison: »A woman called Monika, and a man called Hans. Hans documents in writing that Monika has threatened him - her boss, employer and lover – with the withdrawal of her sexual favors if his wife doesn't apologize to her.«
Die Frau des Fotografen (Orig.) / 2011 / Germany / 30 min
Gerti Gerbert was photographed by her husband Eugen over a period spanning more than forty years. Besides the obligatory family photographs, from their wedding day until his death Eugen took countless pictures of Gerti: in her underwear, in homemade summer frocks, or completely naked; on the beach, in the woods, in the car, or on the floor at home. Using the Gerberts’ picture archive, interviews with Gerti, and Eugen’s notes, the film looks at what remains of life and love at the end.
