Slovenia sends The Tree to the Oscars

We are happy to share the news! The Association of Slovenian Filmmakers has announced that it has selected Sonja Prosenc‘s The Tree as the country’s submission for the Best Foreign-language Film Academy Award.  (Cineuropa)

Told from three points of view, this riveting family tragedy is the acclaimed feature debut from director Sonja Prosenc. A mother and her two sons live cloistered in their own home. But what is it about the outside world they fear? As each piece of the puzzle comes together, this gripping chamber drama moves towards its shattering climax with the inevitability of a Greek drama. Winner of awards at several international festivals, The Tree masterfully maintains an air of steadily mounting tension as its mystery unfolds. (Museum of the moving image New York)

“The Tree marks the arrival of a distinctively talented young filmmaker. Sonja Prosenc tells a stark, elemental story in startingly unconventional manner.”
