Keeping & Saving or how to live
A film about holding onto material things at a time when digital is superseding everything.
For as long as she can remember director Digna Sinke has been keeping all kinds of things. Together with her 92-year-old mother she tries to find out where this need comes from. These ‘kept things’ turn out to be time machines that recall memories that have all but disappeared. But something is changing. Digitization has created a completely different way of life. Digna goes in search of the new human, who no longer cares about material things, but about experiences.
