A small town in present-day Bulgaria. A mother and her two daughters are struggling to survive. The dreamy and distracted younger daughter often invents stories in order to make life more interesting. Unwittingly, she eventually gets caught in the trap of her own lies and destroys her older sister’s well-ordered materialistic world. While struggling to get to the truth, the two sisters find out the truth about their mother.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director Svetla Tsotsorkova and Producer Svetoslav Ovcharov.

Object Interviews Part III
Copyright: Patrick Hough
The screening of ‘Sister’ will be preceded by a short film from the ‘Object Interviews’ series by Irish artist Patrick Hough. This artist moving image work was selected to create a dialogue with ‘Sister’ by AEMI Curators (Artist and Experimental Moving Image) who will present the world premiere of their new touring programme as part of CIFF2020 this November.
‘Object Interviews’ is a series of three films in which specialists from various fields interpret and discuss a range of film props. Part III considers the perspective of two prop makers, discussing the continuous overlap between the objects represented history and its own history as an object, used in multiple productions. Within these films, the prop takes centre stage as an object in some ways more powerful and significant than the ‘original’ historical artifact, opening up a space for fiction to become part of our understanding of history.
Duration: 6 mins
