Films in ‘IFFR Live’
La Holandesa (Messi and Maud)Marleen Jonkman IFFR 2018 90′
How do you deal with the sorrow of not being able to have children? Dutch woman Maud undertakes an aimless journey through Chile, filmed with breathtaking beauty. The actress Rifka Lodeizen stands out in this roadmovie, which shows how you can lose yourself – and then find yourself again.
NinaOlga Chajdas IFFR 2018 130′
Masterful and sensuous drama about thirty something Nina, who is looking for a surrogate mother for the child she and her longtime husband desperately long for. Young, independent Magda looks like a suitable candidate. But everything changes when Nina unexpectedly gets attracted to her. A turbulent love story with a strong vibe.
Nico, 1988Susanna Nicchiarelli IFFR 2018 93′
Sound, loving and above all honest biopic about Nico, more than twenty years after Andy Warhol and The Velvet Underground. Trine Dyrholm (Kollektivet, Festen) is stunning as the artiste who always has to carry the ballast from the past with her, but continues to believe in the possibilities of a new start.
Pin CushionDeborah Haywood IFFR 2018 82′
An all-girl, gothic fairy tale set in British working-class suburbs. Single mother Lyn and her teenage daughter Iona are excited about their new life in a new town, but the transition doesn’t go as smoothly as planned. Both keep up a pretence to protect each other from the dangerous outside world.
