Girl · dir. Lukas Dhont
Belgium 2018, 100’

25 October, 17:00 · CKK Jordanki

Determined 15-year-old Lara is committed to becoming a professional ballerina. With the support of her father, she throws herself into this quest for the absolute at a new school. Lara’s adolescent frustrations and impatience are heightened as she realizes her body does not bend so easily to the strict discipline…

Let's quote the director himself: “I wanted the audience to understand what it’s like to be born in a body that’s not yours. A lot of people have a body they don’t feel fully connected to. I wanted to talk about the relationship with the body, and next to that, I really wanted to show the father–child relationship.”
