Two Girls is the story of young sisters in the American Midwest left alone with their increasingly unstable mother while their father is fighting in the Civil War. The film traces the girls' naturally fraught sibling dynamic and the ways that their father’s absence ignites their imagination. When they meet a stranger in a meadow they become enchanted by a world of creative work and nature, a welcome distraction from their volatile mother. Play and the dreamlike space they inhabit provides an expansive and ultimately grounding setting for the girls” response to war. (James Fotopoulos, USA, 2018, 104 min.) In German and English with English subtitles
