Doclisboa Focus: Sofia Bohdanowicz

We introduce the work of young director Sofia Bohdanowicz capturing women late in their life. What will we remember and what will sink into oblivion? Watch a selection of the works of the talented Canadian filmmaker whose films were screened in a retrospective at Doclisboa.

Sofia Bohdanowicz became critically acclaimed already for her short film trilogy Last Prayer which was presented at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York in 2015. Her feature-length debut Never Eat Alone won the Emerging Canadian Director Award at the Vancouver International Film Festival and her film Maison du bonheur was awarded the Best Canadian Documentary of 2017 by Canadian critics. Her latest film MS Slavic 7 was screened in world premiere at Berlinale.

In collaboration with Doclisboa, we present a selection of films by Sofia Bohdanowicz capturing the personal stories of a perishing generation. In her docudrama Never Eat Alone the director depicts the story of her grandmother trying to track down her long-ago lover. In Maison du bonheur, she follows the everyday life of a Paris astrologist who has lived in her apartment for over fifty years. In her own unique way, the director combines documentary footage from the present and memories from the past in her short film trilogy Last Prayer (A Prayer, An Evening, Another Prayer).

Selected films is powered by Doc Alliance, a creative partnership of 7 key European documentary film festivals. Our aim is to advance the documentary genre, support its diversity and promote quality creative documentary films.
