Castratus the Boar

Role: Kristine
Director: R. Abele and L.Abele

Film had been selected for Grand Prix in Tampere International Film Festival as best short film, consequently it qualified for a selection to Oscars. Film is globally recognised. 

"Castratus the Boar" is an impressionistic story about a small town resident Valter and his secret that prevents him from integrating in local community. He spends his days breeding pigs and singing in the church choir but that doesn’t make him less lonely. When he finally tries to establish closer contact with a fellow girl Aija, his representations of masculinity take a weird turn.
