Hannah is in love with her vagina, a passionate relationship in aconstant evolution, like her body. She chronicles the way she views her body and how her sexuality has changed over the years: through many metaphors she thinks about it, while she is at the restaurant. From eczema to intimate body shaving, or even how she had an orgasm for the first time thanks to her Playstation joystick, she confides in us openly. Thought to be a modern version of the Vagina Monologues, Hot Dog addresses femininity and sex in a humorous, light and honest way.

“There are three perceptions of truth – hers, his and ours”. On her way home one night, a woman notices a shadow behind her. She is overwhelmed by a stranger who grabs her and tries to rip off her clothes. They fight. The point of view switches between man and woman, and a third point of views is involved: eyewitnesses who live in surrounding houses. They look down to an escaping perpetrator and a helpless victim. Reality becomes blurred and that fears and facts merge with analogies.

During that time she studied as an exchange student in Paris at “Gobelins l’école de l’image”. With the short film Augenblicke she graduated from the Filmakademie.
