Time Quartet: Cellula Filia (2022)

Original title: Ajakvartett: Tütarrakk

Other categories Duration 20:55

A conversation through time between a woman and her great grandmother. Piibe Kolka uses PXL2000 toy camera to record pixelated visuals and various messages on audio cassettes in an attempt to establish a time travelling communication. The film probes an epigenetic hypothesis that individual life experiences could influence biological inheritance and gene expressions. The result is a science fictional play between generations, addressing life histories, inherited doubt, and the search for possible adventures.
