PROJECT Her party
During a New Year’s costume party Silvia, a 26 year old actress meets her ex- lover and stage director Stoyan. Behind the animal masks lay hidden the secrets and personal drama of Silvia and Stoyan, which are revealed through an improvised performance.
The topic of the film is the emotional and physical experience of an abortion for a young woman, as well as the breakdown of the man, who was in a relationship with her. The film will portray youngsters with artistic professions, who often have to choose between career and family. “Her party” will also reflect on the alienation, solitude and the inner obstacles young people face in order to form solid relationships, in which responsibility is key. The theme is treated through a theatre performance during which the animal masked guests of the party debate about the decision of a termination.
