Katrin Gebbe sits down with us at our radio call studio in Venice to talk about her feature Pelikanblut – Pelican Blood – an intense tour de force in the realm of motherhood, the unknown and (super)Nature.
Pelikanblut: Wiebke lives together with her nine-year-old adoptive daughter Nicolina on an idyllic horse farm. After many years of waiting, she now has the chance to adopt Raya, a five-year-old girl, to provide Nicolina with the longed-for sister. The first weeks are harmonious, and the siblings get along great. But shortly thereafter, Wiebke realises that Raya, initially shy and charming, is becoming increasingly aggressive and poses a danger to herself and others. The mother will soon have to cross borders and take extreme decisions to protect her cubs.
