The Cherry Orchard, 2022

The longing for the uncertain can lead to freedom.

Zhenya plays in the theater at school. There she meets Vera, who inspires admiration in her. As she spends more time with Vera and her friends, she feels truly free for the first time. A freedom that would never be possible to live out in her conservative family. Situations that go against imposed normalities, but give her a sense of freedom, move her to admit for herself and act where she once only observed.

Directed by Margarita Kojkov and Patrick Schardt and shot by me and Emilia Riedmann.
