Elli is an android and lives with a man she calls her father. Together they drift through the summer. During the day they swim in the pool and at night he takes her to bed. She shares his memories and anything else he programs her to recall. Memories that mean everything to him but nothing to her. Yet, one night she sets off into the woods following a fading echo. The story of a machine and the ghosts we all carry within us.
" The Trouble with Being Born is not a film about artificial intelligence, but about a container - a kind of echo, a flicker of fading meanings and attachments - and about the people who seem to get entangled in their memories, unknowingly having become the ghosts of their own stories. I suppose they are the ghosts we have always been". - Sandra Wollner
Austria, 2020, 94min, German with English subtitles, directed by Sandra Wollner
