The End of Suffering (a Proposal)

Sofia is panicky, again. The Universe decides to contact her. An other-wordly dialogue. A planet symphony for Mars, where people dream awake and fight for love.

Director Biography

Jacqueline (Athens, 1989) is a writer/director whose cinematic language involves finding poetry in –seemingly- mundane premises and/or creating visual poetry through word and image association. She experiments with formats, duration and feelings. Thematically her films revolve around unconventional family constructs, love (and the lack of it), loneliness and belonging. She has directed four shorts which have screened and won in numerous festivals, the most prestigious one being the Cine Leica Discovery Award in Cannes’ Semaine De La Critique (2018) for ‘Hector Malot: The Last Day of the Year’.
