Kateryna Gornostai
Ukraine, 2018, 24 Min

Lonely together. This could be the subtitle for this film. For although the protagonist is surrounded by friends, she feels misunderstood and alone. She does not say that, but her face speaks volumes.

Anya wants to spend New Year's Eve with her friends and argues about it with her mother. Anya leaves anyway, but even in the clique there is not only sunshine. She gets into conflict with her friend Lisa because she flirts with the attractive Ruslan. But the others also keep on teasing each other.

Filmmaker Kateryna Gornostai accompanies an evening amongst teenagers and shows silent emotions and subliminal vibrations that question the cohesion of the group. Subtle, but effective. NaF
