Seventeen-year-old Iva is in the process of coming to terms with the death of her mother. Influenced by this deep personal loss and by the discovery that she didn’t know everything about her mom, the girl slowly immerses herself into a strange, almost dreamlike world. Sonja Prosenc’s movie is dominated by a distinctive poetic that attacks the viewer’s senses, as well as by a narratively loose style and an ability to construct a story with the aid of the subtlest of suggestions.


Synopsis

Seventeen-year-old Iva is in the process of coming to terms with the death of her mother. Influenced by this deep personal loss and by the discovery that she didn’t know everything about her mom, the girl slowly immerses herself into a strange, almost dreamlike world far from reality. After her internationally successful debut The Tree (KVIFF 2014), Sonja Prosenc returns to Karlovy Vary with her second picture, in which she continues to develop a boldly constructed and distinctive poetic that attacks the viewer’s senses, as well as a narratively loose style and an ability to put a story together with the aid of the subtlest of suggestions. The movie presents a rising star of Slovenian film, Doroteja Nadrah, in the role of Iva, and her onscreen partner is the charismatic Norwegian actor Kristoffer Joner.
