Sinopsis

Nakon smrti svoje bake Bebie, sedamnaestogodišnja manekenka Arijadna vraća se u rodnu Gruziju na bakinu sahranu. Po povratku u domovinu dobiva neobičan i neočekivan zahtjev: u skladu s drevnom tradicijom, kao najmlađoj članici obitelji, Arijadni pripada obveza da ujedini tijelo i dušu svoje bake tako što će jednom niti konca povezati mjesto njene smrti s mjestom na kojem njeno tijelo čeka na ukop. Iako isprva nije voljna sudjelovati u tom bizarnom ritualu, Arijadna se uskoro nađe na putu, i u društvu Temoa, mladog obiteljskog prijatelja nejasnih motiva, prelazi dvadeset i pet kilometara kroz netaknuta prostranstva Gruzije razvlačeći nit konca. Dok danima i noćima hoda kroz surove gruzijske krajolike, Arijadna je prisiljena suočiti se s istinom o utjecaju koji je njena kompleksna, i ponekad okrutna, baka i vladarica obitelji imala na njeno ne tako davno djetinjstvo. Prvi dugometražni film redateljice Juje Dobrachkous, s prekrasnom crno-bijelom fotografijom, inspiriran je pričom iz grčke mitologije, i na empatičan način pokazuje kako nije lako pronaći izlaz iz labirinta, iako je Minotaur mrtav.

Following the death of her grandmother (‘Bebia’), seventeen-year-old model Ariadna returns to Georgia to attend the funeral. Back in her motherland, she receives an unusual and unexpected request: according to an ancient local tradition, Ariadna, as the youngest member of the family, is responsible for reuniting the body and soul of her grandmother by connecting a thread from the place of her death to the resting body. At first reluctant to fulfil such a bizarre-sounding ritual, Ariadna soon finds herself carrying a single line of thread across 25km of unspoiled Georgian countryside, accompanied by Temo, a young man and family friend of uncertain motive. Traversing this exhausting and raw terrain over a number of days and nights, Ariadna is forced to confront the impact that the complex, sometimes cruel matriarch —Bebia — had on her not-so-distant childhood. The first film from director and writer Juja Dobrachkous and shot entirely in stunning black-and-white, “Bebia – à mon seul désir” finds inspiration in Greek mythology, compassionately acknowledging that, even when the Minotaur is dead, it’s never easy to find your way out of the maze.

Juja Dobrachkous

Redateljica, spisateljica i slikarica, živi i radi u Londonu. Rođena u Sovjetskoj Rusiji, diplomirala je na Akademiji likovnih umjetnosti u Moskvi. „Neprestano sam slikala i svi su bili sretni osim mene. Jaz između mojih ideja i postignuća bio je toliko velik da sam se fizički razboljela. U nadi da ću preći preko toga, počela sam pisati“. Juja je objavila dva beletristička djela, a njezine kratke priče (Rubber Baby, 2011.; Very Scary and a Bit Shameful, 2019.) pojavile su se u nekoliko antologija moderne ruske književnosti, kao i u brojnim časopisima. „Više volim pisati nego slikati, jer je nesrazmjer između namjere i rezultata značajno manji“. Jujine kratke priče su vrlo priznate u Rusiji, a neke su i prerađene u scenarije. Bebia je Jujin dugometražni redateljski prvijenac. „Konačno sam pronašla najbolji format koji mi pruža sponu između ideja i izvedbe: film“.

is a director, writer and painter based in London. Born in Soviet Russia, she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Moscow. “I painted all the time and everyone was happy but me. The gap between my ideas and achievement was so large that I grew physically sick from it. Hoping to narrow this space, I started to write.” Juja has published two works of fiction and her short stories (Rubber Baby, 2011; Very Scary and A bit Shameful, 2019) have appeared in several anthologies of modern Russian literature, as well as a number of magazines. “I prefer writing to painting, where the distance between intention and result is much narrower”. Juja’s short works of fiction have been widely acclaimed in Russia, several being optioned by film production companies. Bebia is Juja’s feature film debut. “I finally found the best format to narrow the gap between my ideas and execution: cinema”.
