Hi Maya

2004 | Aging/Elders / Relationships / Representation / Sexuality / Women's Studies | 12m | Switzerland
Directors: Claudia Lorenz

In this charming short film, two elderly ladies meet unexpectedly at a hairdressing salon one day. Maya recognizes Charlotte, and Charlotte recognizes Maya, but Maya pretends she doesn't know Charlotte. Their unexpected meeting reawakens memories of their youth together and their shared past, of which they are, perhaps, unsure they want to be reminded.
