Children play on a beach dotted by umbrellas. The air is dominated by the sounds of the ocean, the blue sky and the warmth of the sun. In the middle of it all is a child asleep, the 13-year-old Ava. While her young spirit is awakening she is losing her sight due to a disease. As she enters puberty, she looks for ways to deal with the impending problems she will face once she loses her sight completely. Ava, which received an award at the Critics’ Week of Cannes where it premiered, tells the coming-of-age story of a teenage girl through an intricate narrative with a solid sense of cinema. In her first feature length, Léa Mysius paints a visually accomplished and complex portrait of a character.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
