Filmmaker Adina Pintilie’s first feature won the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival. Blurring the line between non-fiction and fiction, it is a cinematic psychoanalysis session of astonishing force. Through a series of meetings (one is with a trans person; another with a disabled person, etc.), disturbing conversations/confrontations reveal the great neuroses of Western society: low self-esteem, sexuality, fear of the other, the ‘monsters’, and the many and various forms of sexual difference. It is an uncomfortable film experience but one that will ultimately liberate you from a number of taboos. Thank you, Doctor.
Adina Pintilie was born on January 12, 1980 in Bucharest, Romania as Adina-Elena Pintilie. She is a director and writer, known for Touch Me Not (2018), Don't Get Me Wrong (2007) and Sandpit #186 (2009).
