God Exists, Her Name Is Petrunya

Teona Strugar Mitevska / NOR, BE, FR, HR, SI, 2019 / 100 min.

A Macedonian woman dives after a crucifix that is thrown into the river by a priest in an annual ritual reserved for men only. In the chaos that ensues, she bravely defies the furious men. The biting satire takes hilarious aim at patriarchal society and won the European Parliament’s Lux Film Prize Award in 2019.
