Vivian Vivian
a film by Ingrid Kamerling



Synopsis
Since five years Vivian, the sister of director Ingrid Kamerling, is no more. What happened to her?
In this creative documentary, Ingrid Kamerling explores what happened to Vivian. She tries to get inside the head of her sister, by way of archival material, material she filmed shortly after the death of her sister, interviews with friends of Vivian and images of the people that were left behind. She tries to come to know Vivian by how people have known her. The images touch upon reality and imagination, subconsciousness, dreams and thoughts. The film records the echo of Vivian's existence; in her remaining stuff, the spaces where she lived, in the memories of people, the road she took to her last deed.
