Filthy

Filthy, "Spina"

Synopsis

Director

„Filthy“ is the coming-of-age story of the seventeen year-old Lena. In love with a boy for the first time, Lena longs for freedom and adventure. Her world is shattered instantly when her teacher, whom all her classmates have a crush on, rapes her in her own home. Instead of sharing her trauma, Lena keeps it a secret, even from her best friend. Her pent up feelings drive her to attempt suicide. With her family in shock, Lena ends up in a psychiatric ward.
This powerful, intimate portrait of a girl on the cusp of adulthood tells the story from Lena’s perspective, including teenage dreams, silliness and family hassles. A visually powerful feature debut – this is Nvotová’s graduation film from FAMU – in which the filmmaker, screenwriter and lead actor effectively and convincingly reach the painful heart of the matter: the shame and disbelief rape victims so often have to deal with.

Tereza Nvotová

(b. 1988, Slovakia) has graduated from the FAMU as a filmmaker with her film „Filthy“ (2017). She directs documentaries for the Slovak and Czech public broadcasting. Nvotová is also a screenwriter and actress.
