Apolonia, ApoloniaLea Glob
For thirteen years, Danish filmmaker Lea Glob follows artist Apolonia Sokol. In 2009, the young woman's life looks like any artist's ultimate dream: she studies in Paris at one of Europe's most prestigious art schools. But fairy tales do not exist, it turns out, in this fascinating portrait of not one, but ultimately two talented young women trying to find their place in the (art) world. This multi-layered documentary won the Prize for Best Documentary at the International Documentary Filmfestival of Amsterdam (IDFA).
