Alex and Nica are young, in love and engaged to be married. The summer before their wedding, they go backpacking in the Caucasus Mountains in Georgia. The couple hire a local guide to lead them on a camping trek, and the three set off into a stunning wilderness, a landscape that is both overwhelmingly open and frighteningly closed. Walking for hours, they trade anecdotes, and play games to pass the time. And then, a momentary misstep, a gesture that takes only two or three seconds, a gesture that´s over almost as soon as it begins. But once it is done, it can´t be undone.

Jane Campion: The Cinema Woman

A pioneer among filmmakers, Jane Campion was the first woman to win the Palme d’Or at Cannes, for The Piano. In 40 years of work, she has carved out a unique place for herself in the highly masculine pantheon of cinema. A visual and iconoclastic director, a subtle portraitist of women and the human soul, Campion is also a furtive director: both discreet and whimsical, gentle and impertinent, and sometimes misunderstood.
