A young girl experiences powerful emotions as she slowly loses her eyesight in this beautiful, radiant movie.
She decides to confront the problem in her own way. Led by a black dog she steals on the beach, she turns badass and goes on a crime spree with her gypsy lover-on-the-run. Shot on obsolescent 35mm stock, writer-director Léa Mysius’ enigmatic images in visual luster mirror Ava’s failing eyesight, reflecting her growing loss of innocence. Even in the unknown world of darkness, there remains a glimpse of light.
