What is it like to be the perpetrator in a destructive relationship? Ernesto knows and wants to share his story. He and his girlfriend Juliane have agreed that whenever he ever experiences a crisis, she must immediately hide all knives and flee.

Alongside director Efthymia Zymvragaki, Ernesto explores why he has become a violent man. Through enactments, he attempts to articulate acts of abuse and trauma. As the pieces fall into place for Ernesto, Efthymia’s own story becomes increasingly challenging to ignore, and they both ask the question – is it possible to break the cycle of violence built up over several generations?

Light Falls Vertical was nominated for the European Film Award 2023.
