This screening is in French with English subtitles. Contains themes of war and displacement.

Screening as part of Manipulate Festival 2024.

A small village looted in darkness, a family forced to flee. The two oldest children, Kyona and Adriel are quickly separated from their parents facing the road of exile alone. They embark on a heroic journey which takes them from childhood to adolescence in search of shelter, peace and the hope of finding refuge and their family. Crossing a continent torn apart by war and migrant persecution, these courageous siblings survive incredible challenges, before reaching a new world, free at last.

Florence Miailhe’s breathtakingly beautiful debut feature is meticulously rendered with oil paint on glass throughout. The film takes place in a fictional world similar to central Europe but speaks universally to the story of displaced persons across the world, and is inspired by Miailhe’s own family history, after her grandmother was forced to flee from Odessa with her 10 children.

Manipulate Festival recommends a rating of 15+ for this feature.

Thanks to support of Film Hub Scotland, part of the BFI Film Audience Network, awarding funds from the National Lottery and Screen Scotland.
