Nana is four years old and lives in a stone house beyond the forest. Back from school one late afternoon, all she finds in her house is silence. A journey into the night of her childhood. The world at her height.

Our take

French filmmaker Valérie Massadian won the Best First Feature prize in Locarno for this hypnotic study set in the deep recesses of nature. Nana is a work full of quiet patience, observation, and subtle revelations: the world of a young girl seen from the outside and with exquisite sensitivity.
