Girls in Flower

Konstanza Kapsali
Greece / 2019 / 0:11:15

A vivid memory of women which were once girls. A film about time and femininity, questioning how the erotic body gradually becomes a body that insists, how time is registered within the promise of youth which becomes marital duty. Drawing upon Marcel Proust’s approach on memory, in his novel “In search of lost time” and entering the director’s own visual and sensory memories of her grandmothers, the film seeks to explore femininity in late adulthood. The title is a direct reference to Proust’s novel second volume "In the shadow of young girls in flower".

The film Rift Finfinnee takes the viewer on a journey through the periphery of Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa. The film takes the concrete geography, architecture and the every day life as the starting point for an allegorical narrative about the becoming urban of an African society on the edge of civil war.
