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.
