Political | Historical | Female Director | Drama | Morality

Rwanda, 1994. As a genocide rages, ornithologist Anna (Jowita Budnik) flees the country for her native Poland, taking Claudine (Eliane Umuhire), the daughter of a butchered colleague, with her. Having witnessed unspeakable horrors, both women must come to terms with trauma, though as they react in different ways, the experiences that inexplicably link them would appear to be responsible for driving them apart. This affecting, compassionate drama from the team behind My Nikifor (2004) is a study of psychological distress and identity and features outstanding performances from the two lead actors, who shared the acting prize when the film premiered at Karlovy Vary this year.
