LUX: God Exists, Her Name Is Petrunya

Friday 8 November

16:00 - 17:55 Kijkhuis 1

Every year, the local priest of a small Macedonian village throws a wooden cross into the river and hundreds of men dive after it. This year, Petrunya dives into the water on a whim and emerges as the winner. Her competitors are furious that a woman dared to challenge them, but Petrunya holds her ground and refuses to give up her prize. A sympathetic movie with a fierce protagonist, played wonderfully by Zorica Nusheva.

All LUX films at LIFF are screened free of charge offered by the European parlement! However, do reserve your ticket for this event.

MEP Samira Rafaela provides an introduction and aftertalk on the film.
