ZWISCHEN LICHT UND SCHATTEN (Fading Away) / Fabian Giessler

Fading Away is a short film about Martha and Herbert, an old married couple. Their life together is portrayed in a series of brief episodic scenes, telling of Martha’s gradual retreat into her own little world, where reality and imagination seem to overlap and Herbert’s desperation at his wife’s condition and his concerns about their future together.
