FRANCE | 105 minutes | 2017

Blindness becomes a trigger for emancipation. A debut film, carried by a promising young actress, that’s a breath of fresh air. Ava, 13, is gradually losing her sight. Her mood is somber. Juan, a young gypsy outcast, becomes an unexpected light at the end of the tunnel. For her first feature film, screened at Cannes during Critics’ Week, the French filmmaker delivers a dense, bracing summer tale about the urgency of living life while defying convention. Intriguing.
