Liquid Bread

dir. ALICA BEDNARIKOVA 

DUTCH PREMIERE

A three-generation family in southern Slovakia unveils its secrets! A humorous film with a Cannes premiere that tackles difficult topics from a bright, fresh perspective.  

In the south of Slovakia, on hot summer days, a family of three generations meets under one roof. An unexpected visit from Zoja, the granddaughter, stirs up the peaceful routine. Within the quiet presence of God and alcohol, the family unravels its tragicomical past and a few (almost) unshared memories.
