The Ukrainian feature just won the Crystal Bear for Best Film in the Generation 14plus competition for Young Audiences at this year’s Berlinale Summer Special.
The project was previously part of the Baltic Event Co-Production Market in 2017, then entitled “The Floor is Lava”. The film walks on the line between experienced and imagined reality and takes an intimate and emotional look at the life of a teenager that can be overwhelmingly beautiful and difficult at the same time.
Congratulations to writer and director Kateryna Gornostai on her debut feature film, to producers Vitalii Sheremetiev, Vika Khomenko, Natalia Libet, Olga Beskhmelnytsina and to all of the cast and crew.
