PANORA 8 APRIL 20.30
A widowed mother and her two sons live cloistered in their own home. They do not go outside the massive walls surrounding their barren patio and the massive blue gate to freedom stands heavy and closed. But why? What happened? What is out there that is more frightening than the longing to live freely is overwhelming?
Told from three points of view, this riveting family tragedy is the acclaimed feature debut from director Sonja Prosenc. A tragedy intertwined with grief, death, blood ties and revenge but also tenderness and love. As each piece of the puzzle comes together, this gripping chamber piece moves towards its shattering climax with the inevitability of a Greek drama.
With a masterful soundtrack, striking cinematography and a powerful and clever minimalism Prosenc has created a film that touches your heart and shakes you to the bone.
