How do Afro-German womxn relate to the past lives of their white grandmothers? In STRICKEN we see video portraits of six granddaughters* who talk about Nazism and deep-seated resentments, about love and favourite meals cooked by their grannies, about their family heritage and present-day racism. The results are open and honest portraits — projected onto cloth banners made from textiles that these womxn found in their grandmothers’ wardrobes.
