QUEERER FILMPREIS NIEDERSACHSEN

2018: NINA

Olga Chajdas, Polen 2018, 130 Min.

Nina and Wojtek are a mismatched couple looking for a suitable surrogate mother for the child they hope will save their relationship. One day they both meet Magda and it seems they have found the ideal candidate. Things get more complicated, when Nina suddenly feels attracted to Magda. Nina is a story about an unexpected, difficult love and complicated decisions, in which winners and losers are on the same side and where the world is not divided into good and evil or hetero- and homosexuals. This perfect film debut paints a sensitive portrait of a strong but confused woman, trapped in her role as wife and daughter.
