I Am Me

A film by Kathrin Resetarits

A/D 2006, Stereo, S-16/35mm, 1:1,85, 33 Min., German with subtitles

Synopsis

Twins look at each other and ask themselves who they are. Two pairs of girls, seven and thirteen years old, try to differentiate between themselves or become one. Do I think I’m pretty or that she is? While eating and at school, dancing and dreaming: Harmony and individuality become visible. And then there’s the question of who’s the person in the family photos: “And that’s me.”

I AM ME is a film essay which examines the theme of identity, using two pairs of identical twins as an example. A search among personal experience and everyday life: Who am I and what does this “I” mean, a thing which is so valuable but can present such insurmountable obstacles? What do I as a member of the audience make of the other individuals on the screen? What makes us different, what do we have in common?
