Selfportrait

Synopsis

"Lassnig, or more precisely her head, drawn with felt-tip pen, sings in English with a heart-rending Austrian accent about her life, her dreams, her eternal search for a male partner: 'To look for the better half.' But whenever one which is suitable with regard to color and shape appears, he calls her 'weak' and ‘woman’ in the same verse." – Maya McKechneay

"A conciliatory review of the life of the author using the techniques of animated film." – Maria Lassnig
