A sultry portrait of young people in Transnistra. This tiny state unilaterally declared its independence from Moldavia after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Unfortunately, no-one has officially recognised it as such. Before being swallowed up by the adult world, a group of friends spend a summer in each other’s company. Will they stay or will they go? Combined with electronic music, the Swedish director’s intimate shots seem to suggest that this idyll will be short-lived. Life is ultra-fleeting in a country that doesn’t seem to exist. Earlier this year, the documentary was awarded the VPRO Big Screen Award at the International Film Festival Rotterdam.

Sweden, 2019 | Director: Anna Eborn | 93 minutes | English subtitles

About the Nutshuis Open Air Film Festival
Sultry temperatures, fresh, exciting meals created by Juni Café, beanbags to sit on while your food goes down and a film projected onto a huge outdoor screen. What better way to spend a warm summer evening? On the last Saturday in July and all five Saturdays in August, the Nutshuis garden will be transformed into a cosy open air cinema to host the popular annual Nutshuis Open Air Film Festival.

Our summer exhibition Urban bugs, which shines the spotlight on the insects that are essential to healthy urban life, was an important source of inspiration for the films we selected this year. But it is not only our bee and butterfly populations that are under threat; so much more is in danger of disappearing in today’s world. For example: being a shepherd, the rich variety of seeds, minority languages from all around the world. These films are the result of passionate people enthusiastically trying to turn the tide – sometimes meeting with success, sometimes with failure.

Approaching the theme from a culinary angle, Juni Café will treat its guests to a weekly variation of a dish that used to be a monotonous feature of any party or event: jazzed-up potato salad. The generous buffet dinners in the garden are a tried, tested and far-from-boring formula. Before the Open Air screenings, guests can come and enjoy hot and cold dishes and a richly filled salad bar.

Nutshuis Open Air Film Festival is a collaboration between Het Nutshuis, Juni Café, Movies that Matter and Cinemien.
