We follow a girl, at the end of the adolescence, Ana, who does not know any more who she is and what she wants, but who chooses to fight, to arm herself, and who finds in the group, in the discipline, and sometimes even in the alienation, a stand to be.
The first installment of Rachel Lang’s Ana Trilogy is an exploration of the transition from adolescence to adulthood and the uncertainty that comes with it. This Silver Leopard winner marks the beginning of the collaboration between Lang and Salomé Richard, which will culminate in Baden Baden.
