Films in the Series:

1. The Nettle

4. An Autobiography


Director: Piaoyu Xie

Run Time: 22 min.

Origin: Czech Republic

A brave revelation of a personal quest for exploration, experimentation and excitement of a youthful spirit. The film is political, but poetic at the same time; playful and dreamy with its stunning visuals, but thoughtful due to its careful and realistic portrayal of a heated issue of our contemporaneity. By leading us closer into an intimate space of two teenagers in search for self and values of family, the author eliminates artificially constructed obstacles of gender, age or class, and makes us see youth as it really is: confused, dangerous and gentle, a burning sensation, just like nettle.
