-Small review of 'Conversations' at Flatpack Film Festival on the
Gorilla Film Online website

"In looking back at archive footage of her elderly great-grandmother, Eliane Esther Bots’ film Conversations takes a more mournful look at ageing families. Bots combines this with recently captured footage of her grandmother who tenaciously records the origins of her belongings in a series of notebooks. The objects convey history, character and personal relationships: everything that make up a life. Painful loss is tangible in this largely silent film where the juxtaposition of poignant subtitles and stark still photography permeates the musings with sorrow. We learn about a cherished cassette tape containing the sounds of a long deceased father’s voice, while the film lingers on the only images of him ever captured on film. This succession of female memories creates a space for us to ruminate on the passage of time and the chain of keenly felt emotional ties that stretch back through the generations to the beginning of existence."
