Transnistra

Allowed 93 minutes 2019 6.7

Through a careful yet intimate approach with the camera, filmmaker Anna Eborn manages to portray 16-year-old Tatyana and her friends during a summer vacation that slowly turns into a colder everyday life and eventually winter. They live in a part of eastern Moldova, Transnistria, which has declared itself independently but is not recognized by the outside world. Just like the region they live in; they are between two states. Their summer days are filled with lazy bathing in the river and smoking cigarettes in forest glades, but around the corner awaits an adult life. The film was won a Guldbagge for best documentary 2020 and was also awarded best Nordic documentary at the Gothenburg Film Festival.
