Vannacht worden we vrouwen

Director: Josefien Hendriks
Thirteen-year-old Ismini and twelve-year-old Komal are neighbours and best friends. They regularly stay at each other’s houses. In this film, all the slumber parties they had in one year are fused into one long night, in which the two change from girls into young women. While the girls discuss various girly affairs in the voice-over, stop-motion images show them from above, prostrate, dancing or giggling on the bed. Animations illustrate their intimate conversations about periods, love and friendship.
