NARCISSISM: The Autoerotic images

Toni Karat / Germany / 2022 / 90 min

Plays with the documentary short, Nullo (15 min)

N A R C I S S I S M – The Auto-Erotic Images.
Documentary about gender, narcissism and self-love.

How do we look into the mirror?
Do we allow ourselves a narcissistic or even covetous view?
And how is it influenced by our gender and socialisation:
Are we able to love ourselves and our reflection?
And why do lesbians often have an especially difficult relationship with narcissism?

In this debut feature film Toni Karat invited 33 border crossers of all kinds to this beautiful
untouched attic of 1929 – in order to explore the intimate view in the mirror, accompanied by
photo shoots and interviews about gender, narcissism and self-love.

In English and German with English subtitles.
