Competition Programme closed with the regional premiere of feature film ÁGA

The Competition Programme of 24th Sarajevo Film Festival closed tonight with the regional premiere of the feature film ÁGA by Bulgarian director Milko Lazarov. The screening took place at the National Theatre at 22:00.

In the snowy northern wilderness, Nanook and Sedna dream of reuniting with their daughter Ága, who left the slowly eroding traditional way of life a long time ago. In a yurt on the snow-covered fields of the North, Nanook and Sedna live according to the traditions of their ancestors. Alone in the wilderness, they look like the last people on Earth. Nanook and Sedna's traditional way of life starts changing, slowly, but inevitably. Hunting becomes more and more difficult, the animals around them die inexplicably, and the ice melts earlier every year. Chena, who visits them regularly, is their only connection to the outside world – and to their daughter Ága, who left the icy tundra due to a family feud. When Sedna's health deteriorates, Nanook decides to fulfil her wish. He embarks on a long journey in order to find Ága.
