Two people, two sets of perceptions and memories – did Angela and Christian love each other? Were they ever a proper couple? What did they expect of each other? The only indisputable fact is that they met in 1986 in Berlin. Yet when Angela became pregnant and decided to keep the child, they broke off contact. 25 years later, their daughter interviews them separately. When she plays the respective recording back to them, a dynamic unfolds between the two parents, without them actually encountering each other. In this space, their history is recast in the context of the present. Felt truths appear in amongst true feelings. “He She I” is a film about the power to tell your own story, and the powerlessness to prevent a second version of it – a conversation that never happened.
