The Ana Trilogy

Description of image

To mark the release of Strasbourg-born Rachel Lang’s debut feature Baden Baden (2016), Glasgow Short Film Festival is exclusively screening her two short films, For You I Will Fight (2010) and White Turnips Make It Hard To Sleep (2011). Both films enjoyed UK premieres at GSFF. Together, the two shorts and the feature comprise a trilogy exploring encroaching adulthood and the struggle between reason and passion. Through the course of the three films we watch the young Ana (Salomé Richard) reaching for her identity and place in the world

Richard delivers a magnetic performance, and her character’s development through the three films is reminiscent of Richard Linklater’s Boyhood (2014). But where that film ends, the Ana Trilogy begins, with its forensic and often hilarious examination of early adulthood. Rachel Lang is an exciting new voice in French language cinema, bringing a subtle dry wit and eye for the surreal to subject matter with which anyone can identify.

The first two films screen on Tuesday 25 October at 18.45, introduced by GSFF Director Matt Lloyd. All tickets £5.50. Anyone purchasing a ticket for this screening is entitled to a £5.50 ticket to the 20.45 screening of Baden Baden the same evening
