Girl and Body

Yuri did not see the fall coming. One moment, she was rehearsing for her graduation show. The next, she was on the floor, unable to get up. At the hospital, as she gives her body over to tests and rehabilitation, her world starts to splinter. Until she carefully connects with the enigmatic young woman who shares the room with her. A visual exploration of the fragile connective tissue that binds women to their bodies, and each other. A meditation on the relationship between mind, body and identity.

Charlotte Mars

Born in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, Australia in 1988, the filmmaker studied Media Arts at the University of Technology Sydney and took her first steps in the film world as a protegé of director Cate Shortland (Black Widow, Berlin Syndrome, Lore). Her films focus especially on queer identity and the lives of women. After making her debut short film Awake, and two documentaries in collaboration with the director Maya Newell, she produced Amos Gebhardt’s video installation “Evanescence” in 2017. A guest lecturer at the University of Sydney, she currently lives in Sydney and Berlin.
