drama, mystery  – premiere 12.8.2022 at Locarno Film Festival

A young woman returns to her native mountain village, searching for answers about her troubled childhood, but as she tries to uncover the truth, ancient legends begin to invade modern reality, leading the villagers to accuse her of witchcraft and murder.

Nightsiren addresses the resurgence of ancient beliefs in modern day Slovakia and how issues , such as misogyny, xenophobia, and mass hysteria still prevail in our modern world and tells the story of what it takes to be free when we choose to step off the beaten path.
