    Greek/Macedonian coproduction Kyuka – Before Summer’s End opens the 2024 Cannes’s parallel section ACID

    Summertime. A family of three, single father, Babis, and his twin children on the verge of adulthood, Konstantinos and Elsa, sail to the island of Poros on the family boat for their holidays. In the midst of swimming, sunbathing and making new friends, Konstantinos and Elsa meet, unbeknownst to them, their birth mother Anna who abandoned them when they were babies. This encounter will stir up long-held feelings of resentment in Babis, resulting in a sun-kissed, bittersweet coming-of-age journey for everyone involved.

    Spring Cleaning by Marija Apcevska

    Varava, the prodigal daughter, returns home following her mother Vera's apparent suicide, an event she has trouble accepting. Amidst the chaos of property transfers and strained family relationships, peculiar occurrences take place in the house, suggesting a caring spectral presence. Varava delves into the mysteries, confronting unresolved issues from the past and bonding unexpectedly with Lila, the neighbor’s teenage daughter. She rediscovers truths that force her to reevaluate her understanding of her mother and herself, ultimately leading to one last reunion.
