Shown on International Women’s Day, SOME OTHER STORIES (Neke Druge Price) comprises five short films exploring the themes of motherhood and pregnancy, directed by women filmmakers from five former Yugoslav republics. The stories of love, hope, revenge, sacrifice and defiance are linked by coincidental events that disrupt plans and change lives.
Croatia follows an anguished painter who must decide whether or not to keep one of her unborn twins, diagnosed with Down’s syndrome. Serbia finds an expectant mother in A&E with a charming killer, while Bosnia-Herzegovina focuses on a financially-strapped Sarajevo family whose son’s lover is pregnant. Macedonia unfolds in a private clinic, where a drug addict struggles to keep her baby. The humorous Slovenia involves a resourceful nun who finds her own way to Immaculate Conception.
Cork Cine Club is supported by Access Cinema.
Tickets: €8.50 (€7 concession) are sold at the door.
