Click to see the trailer.
Set in a post communist world, the separation between two sisters leaves memories deeply ingrained in their home land. Fade and Float follows the return journey from abroad of Villy after her sister’s disappearance. The world she identified with no longer is the same and a new exploration of identity and home begins. The film includes elements of physical language as a metaphor to highlight an urge of escape and disembodiment.
