Wild Berries

The sensorial journey of a solitary boy immersed in his own world. Wandering through fields and forests in a desolate landscape, he heads further towards the unknown at every step. Observant and patient at times, bored and restless at others, he searches for something that seems to remain out of his reach. He looks back at us as we follow him into his slowly disintegrating universe, driven by a desire for something in ourselves that perhaps never existed.

Director Bio

Born in Hungary, Marianna Vas graduated from DocNomads International Joint Master’s in documentary film directing in 2016, and holds a MA degree in Cinema, Television and Multimedia Production (DAMS) from the University of Bologna.

Hedda Bednarszky graduated from the department of cinematography at the Faculty of Theatre and Television in Cluj-Napoca, Romania in 2016. Her interest towards bizarre and excentric characters can be noticed in her two short documentarys, The visit (2015) and Catlady (2016). Both short films were screened and awarded at several film festivals.
