TIGER SHORTS – Rotterdam IFFR 2021: EATING SOIL by Laura Weissenberger

TIGER SHORTS – Rotterdam IFFR 2021: EATING SOIL by Laura Weissenberger

Laura Weissenberger's magic short Eating Soil celebrates it's premiere within the Tiger Shorts Award of this year's Rotterdam International Film Festival IFFR.
Eating soil is an essay film that deals with the stories of Colombian women originating from director Laura Weissenberger’s memories and projections on her home country. It is exploring Colombian narrative culture based on the stories of a fictional family, which metaphorically represent a society rather than individual fates. Structured like a memory itself, the viewer encounters topics involving migration, hopes, regrets and approaches to life.
