SMOKE SAUNA SISTERHOOD
NYC PREMIERE In a smoke sauna in Estonia, as the hot-damp air hangs heavy, a group of Voro women gather. Their sweat, tears, and laughter mingle, and in the ethereal in betweenness of light and darkness, they find a way to shed the toil and shame that sticks to their bodies. Anna Hints’ debut feature has garnered awards all over the world, including Sundance’s Documentary directing award. – Bedatri Choudhury
The first screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Anna Hints and producer Marianne Ostrat.
All in-person screening venues provide sound amplification headphones upon request with venue management. IFC Center can also provide a T-Coil loop for compatible devices.
