The end of the weekend is made for the American film To the Stars, which we screen on Sunday, November 10, from 6:00 p.m. in the Světozor cinema. In all its fine-spun detail, the story told by director Martha Stephens conveys a black-and-white, almost dreamlike existence. At first glance it might seem remote to us yet it still tilts a mirror towards today’s world. Pay no mind to the opinions of others--just be yourselves and come and see one of the most distinctive female films of this festival season.
1960s, Oklahoma. Bullied by her classmates, reclusive Iris finds small-town life pure torment; for self-assured Maggie, however, moving to the sticks provides an opportunity to stand out from the rest. What begins as an uneven relationship between two very different girls gradually grows into a sturdy friendship which starts to bring Iris out of her shell. But can the girls be truly themselves? As the heroines soon discover, a society bound by gender traditions doesn’t easily tolerate those who step out of line.
