Part 1: The Way We Live

The emotional intensity of a new tattoo, the suspense of waiting for a train, and the stress experienced by university studies are just a few of the alluring topics in this series of student made ethnographic films. At around 10 minutes each, these 6 films offer enticing windows into the pedestrian rituals and occasional eventfulness of life in and around Lüneburg. Some deal with struggles often unnoticed but always present. Others offer glimpses into experiences seldom considered. Each invites us to take a pause and reflect upon the many facets of the community, city, and people we encounter every day.
