Austrian experimental filmmaker Antoinette Zwirchmayr draws on her unusual family history in three chapters. She recalls the confusion of learning as a child that her grandfather was a pimp who ran the oldest brothel in Salzburg, and interrogates his cavalier attitude toward women as erotic spectacles. Her father, a bank robber who became a miner in Brazil, also features as a figure of uneasy fascination, as she playfully opens up space for multivalence through ambiguity, doubt and mystery.
