Girls' Stories

dir. Aga Borzym / 2023 / Poland / 60min.
Jagoda and Zuzia are friends from the neighbourhood, who are just entering and exploring puberty. They introduce us to the “girlish”’ world that every woman remembers.

Girls' stories, teenage days. Seemingly nothing happens, but there are so many changes. Jagoda and Zuzia are friends from the neighbourhood. They meet at the local square. Sometimes they go for ice cream or to the playground. And they always have a lot to talk about. Being a girl is a special experience, and they are just entering puberty. Biology, hormones, pimples, first rebellion, first love. The first period - when will it come? Will there be anything else? Adults can't always give support or answers. And the girls see more and more. School absurdities, unwanted rules, dilemmas to be solved. Jagoda and Zuzia are great commentators: perverse, ironic, independent, scared. With a great appetite for life! They introduce us to the “girlish”’ world that every woman remembers and any boy who watches the film will finally be able to discover.
