SHE MONKEYS [Apflickorna]

Whether they are ready or not, two sisters — Emma, 15, and Sara, 8 — must navigate the perplexing, perilous world of social hierarchy, psychological gamesmanship and the confusing currency of sexuality. Emma trains hard to make an elite squad of equestrian acrobats, where her efforts catch the eye of team captain Cassandra, a risk-taker who enjoys games of one-upmanship. Meanwhile Sara has a crush on her teenage cousin Sebastian, leading to some risky, provocative actions of her own. A visionary, thought-provoking debut from filmmaker Lisa Aschan. Nordic Film Prize and Critics Award, 2011, Gothenberg Film Festival; Best World Narrative Film, 2011 Tribeca Film Festival; Crystal Bear (Special Mention), 2011 Berlin Film Festival.
