(Documentary) Movie of the Day: Light Falls Vertical (2022) by Efthymia Zymvragaki

A rare work of art, a deeply personal, highly intimate account of a life affected by domestic violence. “When I left the island where I was born, it wasn’t a departure, it was an escape. Years later, I arrive on another island, a barren place that feels strangely familiar. I have come here for an encounter with a man. He says he is willing to expose the violence that he carries within. But when I venture to get closer to the harmful, desperate man, I realize that he also holds the key to my deepest fears, echoing in the violence of my own past. Now his story will never be separated from mine.” An aspiring young woman filmmaker combines the story of a perpetrator and her own experiences with violence in a poetic film that offers insight into the causes and consequences of abuse, triggering our subconscious in a register that only cinema can approach. Nominee International Competition, Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival 2023. Link IMDB:
