YANA - short film
Choux de Bruxelles presents YANA,
a short film by Sarah Baur
Yana, a heroic 10-year-old girl, struggles with unprocessed grief that undermines her grip on reality, when she’s sent back to her former family home on a mission.
She mourns in loneliness, until a wee bit of mischief releases her from the demands of the grown-up world and a new friendship blooms.
Like its main character, the film steps in and out of reality: it is an ode to the healing powers of imagination and the resilience that children derive from it.
With Hasse Huygens, Michael Vergauwen, Julie van der Schaaf, Wouter Krokaert, Birte Leurelle, Viggo Maris, Evelien Den Tandt and Lula Maris
