Four old women reflect on their memories of old times, when they were young and when the relationships between men and women were very different. Their voices merge into one single voice, that of Grandmother Vera, who tells her story in proper detail. A trip into the grandmother’s youth and the memories of her intimate life illustrate the status of Slovenian women in the first half of the 20th century.

Creative Courage and Originality
2022

Kratek, angažiran, subtilen in ironičen film povzame polpretekle tabuje o ženski seksualnosti. V senci mogočnega podjetja cerkve je bil seks namejen zgolj reprodukciji. Bog ne daj užitka. Naše babice se še spomnijo suhosti in hitrosti oplojevanja. Ob vzkliku »kakšen orgazem neki« se babica v animiniranem filmu žmohtno spušča v užitek. Naj živijo babičini orgazmi!

special achievement award
2021

Vesno za posebne dosežke podeljujemo tenkočutnemu animiranemu filmu Babičino seksualno življenje, ki prikaže kratek izlet v zgodovino intimnosti podeželske babice. Avtorica se teme loteva na angažiran in ironičen način, z enostavno in učinkovito risbo ter fotografijo. Gre za ganljivo dokumentarno pripoved s ščepcem satiričnega humorja. Posebni dosežek vidimo v domiselni strukturi filma in odličnem načinu pripovedovanja, ki subtilno razgrinja tabu temo naše polpretekle zgodovine.
