ME, MONIKA is an intensive and warm portrait of a Chanteuse performing two times a day in a hotel in the low mountain range of Germany. She´s been living in that hotel for almost 30 years now.
We met Monika when staying in this place almost fallen out of time. We got attracted by her friendly, pleased appearance and easy manner when having a conversation at the hotel bar - being the only guests under the age of 65.
Back home and a couple of weeks later we decided to contact her again and to film a short portrait to preserve a moment of her unique life.
