(Ukraine, 2021, 120 min.)

1 show for this event

Winner of the Crystal Bear at the Berlinale 2021, Ukrainian director Kateryna Gornostai’s debut film is a coming-of-age story that shows us the joys and anxieties of a group of teenagers through the eyes of Masha, a non-conformist and introverted student, and her group of outsider friends. A passionate and multifaceted portrait of a generation, set in contemporary Ukraine, in a style between documentary and fiction. A deeply personal (and partially autobiographical) story about self-discovery that offers a radical, authentic, and sensitive view of the unsettling feeling of being young.

In case of bad weather, the event will be hosted at the DAMSLab Auditorium in Piazzetta Pier Paolo Pasolini 5/b. Follow the updates on Gender Bender’s social networks.
