A couple coping with a fundamental crisis together is the core of the documentary AM SEIDEN FADEN (2004). Filmmaker Katarina Peters and her husband Boris Babberkoff, a successful cellist from Hungary, travel to New York together shortly after their wedding. He wants to close a record deal, she wants to do research for a new film. But Boris Babberkoff suffers a serious stroke there. His life is in danger and at first he can hardly move or speak. The director decides to document the problems of this situation, such as financing the treatment and his healing process, with a small video camera. (Goethe Institut Kanada)
