(North Macedonia) Director: Goran Stolevski, Cast: Samson Selim, Mia Mustafi, Dzada Selim, Winner 2023 Venice Film Festival Queer Lion, North Macedonia’s Official Selection for Best International Feature at the 96th Oscars. Subtitled, rated R

From acclaimed filmmaker Goran Stolevski comes a story exploring the universal truths of family, both the ones we’re born into and the ones we find for ourselves. Dita never wanted to be a mother, but circumstances force her to raise her girlfriend’s two daughters, tiny troublemaker Mia and rebellious teen Vanesa. A battle of wills ensues as the three continue to butt heads and become an unlikely family that must fight to stay together. “Writer and director Goran Stolevski gives us an atypical family portrait that’s brilliantly political without being preachy, loving without being maudlin and epic by being specifically tiny.” —Associated Press
