In a sleepy provincial town, a Jehovah’s Witness community is under attack from an extremist group. In the midst of this conflict is Yana, the wife of the community leader, whose familiar world is slowly crumbling around her. Meanwhile, a detective intrudes on her home with devastating consequences.

Recalling the films of Michael Haneke, Carlos Reygadas and Chantal Akerman, this is a provocative and visually arresting feature debut from Georgian writer-director Dea Kulumbegashvili that will shake you to your core.

Q&A with Dea Kulumbegashvili and Luca Guadagnino
