History of Love at Karlovy Vary IFF
Second feature film by Sonja Prosenc History of Love was selected to Karlovy Vary IFF Main Competition Program.
Lenka Tyrpáková, KVIFF programmer, wrote about the film:
“Seventeen-year-old Iva is in the process of coming to terms with the death of her mother. Influenced by this deep personal loss and by the discovery that she didn’t know everything about her mom, the girl slowly immerses herself into a strange, almost dreamlike world far from reality. After her internationally successful debut The Tree (KVIFF 2014), Sonja Prosenc returns to Karlovy Vary with her second picture, in which she continues to develop a boldly constructed and distinctive poetic that attacks the viewer’s senses, as well as a narratively loose style and an ability to put a story together with the aid of the subtlest of suggestions. The movie presents a rising star of Slovenian film, Doroteja Nadrah, in the role of Iva, and her onscreen partner is the charismatic Norwegian actor Kristoffer Joner.”
The world premiere is to be held on June 30 at 20.00 in Grand Hall.
