Eva and Ramona

SYNOPSIS

EVA AND RAMONA is a filmic essay exploring how the division between ”East” and ”West” shapes identity – mirrored in the friendship of Swedish Eva and East German Ramona. By weaving together documentary, fiction, archive and personal photographs the film will work as a personal reflection on why there is still a value scale in which the ”East” is considered inferior to the ”West” and how this scale influences the individuals sense of self-worth. For this director Minka Jakerson will use her own family history as well as the friendship between Eva and Ramona – reflected in the history of the GDR and the Soviet block.
