Walchensee Forever

Directed by Janna Ji Wonders

This documentary family saga is a voyage of discovery spanning four generations of women over a century. In order to uncover the secrets and her role in the generation chain, director Janna Ji Wonders leads us from the family café at the Bavarian Lake Walchensee via Mexico to San Francisco during the “Summer of Love”, Indian ashrams, a German commune and back again and again to Lake Walchensee. Questions about identity, roots and self-fulfillment are asked through this search for life, love and death. It is a personal story about the eternal cycle of life.
