The News

When a woman discovers a corpse, the whole village starts to compete over who will get coverage on national television. An awarded tragicomedy and this year’s candidate for European Film Awards!

A newly married woman lives with her in-laws while her husband works in the neighbouring country, Greece. One day she stumbles across a dead woman’s body whilst fetching the water from the fountain. Pushed to the side, both the in-laws proceed to talk to the local news, lying about finding the body and revelling in the attention they’re getting. A battle amongst the villagers to get coverage in the news ensues, and the actual crime itself becomes overshadowed. Talented director Lorin Terezi says the film shows violent media reality and exaggeration of the news that we are facing every day; just for one more view, one more click.
