DOK Leipzig 29 October – 4 November 2018
61st International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film
DOK Leipzig Film Festival



When the organ speaks it speaks with all voices. It’s an integral instrument, a machine that creates syntheses. In “Trusted” figurations of human trust merge in one sound. The creator, the mother, the S/M partner: a tonal magnetism – and the experimental re-vision of Lars von Trier’s orgasm drama “Nymphomaniac”.
