10.000 KM

Long Distance

 
Alexandra und Sergio haben beschlossen ein Kind zu bekommen, als eine Nachricht sämtliche Pläne auf den Kopf stellt: Alexandra erhält das Angebot eines einjährigen KünstlerInnenaufenthalts in Los Angeles – die vielleicht letzte Gelegenheit, mit ihrer Fotografie erfolgreich zu werden. Für die kommenden Monate ist der Computer die einzige Verbindung zwischen den Liebenden. Je mehr Zeit verstreicht, desto mehr füllen sich die 10.000 Kilometer, die sie voneinander trennen, mit Zweifeln an der Stärke ihrer Beziehung …

Alexandra and Sergio have just decided to have a baby when a news arrives that turns their plans upside down: Alexandra has been offered a year-long artist's residency in Los Angeles. It is her best – and maybe only – opportunity to relaunch a stagnating career in photography. Certain of their relationship's solidity, they face the new challenge head-on. Video chats and e-mails become their everyday tools for staying in touch between Barcelona and Los Angeles. For months they only have the virtual image of the other, with their communication problems, with the obligation to talk every day even when there's nothing to say, with jealousy, with the longing for physical contact. Two people who love each other, two apartments and the images of their past, present and future. Can love survive a distance of 10.000 km?
