Zugperlen / Train of Pearls
Production: Germany 2013
Anna, Danuta, and Leokadia are strong women unafraid of cleaning up a huge garage, being away from home, or definitely leaving an irresponsible partner. On a train rolling slowly through the countrysides of Brandenburg and Mecklenburg, the three women share their experiences of working and living abroad, their views on partnership and family. From overworked emigrants they transform into elegant ladies drinking sparkling wine. Behind them: the tough months of work, before them: meeting with their loved ones, often far from idyllic. Right now they are only for themselves: Anna, Danuta, and Leokadia in the trans-territorial bubble of a train, between work and home.
