Wildfire

Wildfire

Greek premiere

Kelly reappears out of the blue in her insular border town, in Northern Ireland. Her sister, Laura, who had put her entire life on hold after her disappearance, is torn between relief and bitterness. The reuniting of the two sisters unearths buried family secrets regarding their mother’s death, triggering a head-on collision with a painful past. Skillfully blending stark elements of kitchen sink drama with surreal brushstrokes, this tale of sisterly reconciliation mirrors the collective trauma of a tortured country.
