APRIL’S DAUGHTER Screened in Open Air Programme
Open Air programme of the 23rd Sarajevo Film Festival tonight brought us APRIL’S DAUGHTER, a film by the Mexican director Michel Franco, president of the jury of this year’s Sarajevo Film Festival Competition programme.
Seventeen-year-old Valeria got pregnant with her teenage boyfriend, but she has not yet informed her absent mother, April. Valeria's sister Clara goes behind her back and calls April, who arrives with displays of concern, support and tenderness. But once the baby is born, it soon becomes clear why Valeria wanted to keep April as far away as possible.
APRIL’S DAUGHTER was shown in the Raiffeisen Open Air Cinema at 20:30.
