directed by Léa Mysius, France 2017, 105' (English friendly)
Distinguished at the Cannes International Film Festival, the film is one of the loudest and strongest debuts from France in recent years. Ava is the winner of the 4th edition of the Scope100 project – a program under which films are recommended and selected for distribution by the viewers themselves.
The fleeting world of summer holidays: the dreamy atmosphere of summer, the hot rays of the sun, and the sea breeze on your face. Ava is a young girl in which rebellion is maturing. A mysterious boy met on the beach will make Ava instinctively surrender to the new and unknown. It will be the time of a first fascination with love, independence, and freedom. One thing is certain: this kind of summer only happens once in a lifetime.
