Adina Pintilie's film Touch Me Not shown In Focus

As a part of the In Focus programme, Golden Bear winner of this year's Berlin Film Festival was shown today at 16:00 at National Theatre. Q&A with actress Irmena Chichikova was held afterwards.

Together, a filmmaker and her characters venture into a personal research project about intimacy. On the fluid border between reality and fiction, TOUCH ME NOT follows the emotional journeys of Laura, Tómas, and Christian, offering a deeply empathic insight into their lives. Craving intimacy yet also deeply afraid of it, they work to overcome old patterns, defence mechanisms, and taboos, to cut the cord and finally be free.
