Living Together

Belgian premiere


From 1996 to 2012, Anny’s life -or more precisely, Anny’s lives-  was -were- recorded by Helena Trestíková. Living in Czech Republic, Anny is a modest, funny and persevering woman from the working class. She has and assumes many occupations: prostitute, cleaning lady and bathroom attendant, but she is mostly a mother and a grandmother. Anny is a witty and hardworking survivor, working to feed and take care of herself and her family. The film Anny portrays the life of an ‘everyday’ average woman, letting us into the thoughts and fears of a touching and deeply human character.
