Eva is a young artist who smokes, drinks, occasionally takes drugs, parties and finds no creative inspiration. She also has a strange love affair with her mentor, her best friend is moving to Berlin, her pay check is three months late and above all so is her period. She realizes she needs to change her lifestyle and turns to a web browser for help. Bitch is a film about a period in life where you simply get stuck and do not know how to move on. A subversive comedy in Slovenian street language. A debut feature directed by Tijana Zinajić, a distinguished theatre director and actress, and written by an acclaimed young screenwriter Iza Strehar.

Whenever I want to express that it has been a long time since I have done something, I say that I have not done it since 1991. That was when Eva was born. The protagonist of the film is a woman – a maladjusted woman who longs for the very same things as well-adjusted ones, only that she has a different way of dealing with her desires. As a director, I am interested in this maladjustment as well as in what happens when such a woman loses her period at a turning point in her life, shortly before her 27th birthday – in how she deals with the situation in her dysfunctional way!

Liza Marijina je še enkrat dokazala, kako močno in natančno občuti jezo generacije, ki na videz noče odrasti, čeprav ji je vse kristalno jasno. V liku Eve s svojo neizprosno neposrednostjo in jebivetrstvom »ubija« in »kolje« vse okrog sebe, obenem pa v njej začutimo strah, negotovost in globoko hrepenenje.

Anuša Kodelja nas v vlogi Nine popolnoma očara s svojo svežino, razigrano drznostjo in izjemnim občutkom za humor. Postane naša »bestička«, sorodna duša, s katero bi odšli na konec sveta – ali pa vsaj do Berlina.

Vesna Award
best screenplay
2021

Scenarij je anarhičen in analitičen. Ironičen in samokritičen. Psovaški in umetniško ambiciozen. Feminističen in falusoiden. Iskren in prevarantski. Trezen in pijan. Drogiran in čist. Abstinenčen in »jebački«. Kot življenje.

Nagrado za najboljšo scenografijo prejme Neža Zinajić za film Prasica, slabšalni izraz za žensko. Številne lokacije, med njimi mnoge in vsem dobro znane ljubljanske vedute, študentska stanovanja, galerijski in zabaviščni prostori, stranišča in ordinacije, vse se odlično vklaplja v eklektični slog filma in vse deluje avtentično ter podpira like in režijo.

Nagrado za najboljšo kostumografijo prejme Matic Hrovat za film Prasica, slabšalni izraz za žensko. Za ulično modo, prenešeno v filmsko kostumografijo, ki odlično oriše like, zataknjene med otroštvom in odraslostjo.

Vesna Award
best feature film
2021

Film, ki nas je nabolj presenetil in očaral. Film, ki poka od energije, življenja in naklonjenosti do svojih likov. Ne igra na karto v evropskem art filmu trendovskega minimalizma, ampak izrablja vse, kar se mu ponuja – od plazu besed do tišine, od plesa do posedanja v mali kuhinji in drogeraških tripov. In v vsem je dober. To je film sijajno zrežiranega igralskega ansambla, dinamike in neke čisto nove, sveže filmske energije.
