Anna Eborn’s observational documentary focuses on a group of teenagers in a Moldovan region known as Transnistria. Most charismatic of the group is the precocious Tanya, the sole female, who uses her charms, wiles and cunning to maintain her status. Shooting on beautiful Super 16mm film in box ratio confers a sense of eternal nostalgia on the subjects, a feeling accentuated by a delightful soundtrack ranging from Swedish folk pop to Broadcast-esque dream pieces. However, at the margins lies evidence of uncertainty and narrowing horizons, and towards the end Eborn allows the darkness to appear. DOM
