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.
With short prefilm from Eye's collection

The films featured in Eye’s Previously Unreleased programme were screened at major national and international festivals, but were never released to Dutch cinemas. Frome 17 June Eye brings a choice of films previously selected for international festivals to Dutch film audiences to redress the balance.
