Sing for Us
Czech Republic | 2020 | 22 min. | director: Terézia Halamová | DoP: Lubomír Ballek | screenplay: Terézia Halamová | cast: Karolína Lipowská
A stifling and seemingly boring summer afternoon presents fourteen-year-old Eva with several challenges. While she can hide from the piercing rays of the sun in the cool waters of a nearby pond, the longing for love and inclusion in the group of older friends cannot be solved by water alone. A sensitive portrait of coming-of-age is supported by poetic cinematography allowing a glimpse into the insecure inner-self of a shy teenage girl.
