Light as Feathers

Rosanne Pel Feature film - 2018 - 86 min.

Drama about a 15-year-old boy in a female-dominated household in the Polish country. He has a soft spot for the young girl next door, but crosses boundaries he was unaware of. Winner of the 2018 Directors’ Forum and KNF Award.

In a not particularly idyllic Polish rural village, fifteen-year-old Eryk lives with his dominant mother, his grandmother and his great-grandma who is growing demented. His father is nowhere in sight. While Eryk is being used by his mother whenever she pleases, the teenage boy sexually abuses the young girl next door, in this family drama. When she turns out to be pregnant, the people involved choose to keep silent. The boy’s family gets broken even further. Despite attempts to take back life, there is no escaping the stifling family dynamics.
