Thirst

featuring

Monika Naydenova, Alexander Benev, Svetlana Yancheva,

When water becomes scarce due to drought, a laundress living in rural southwest Bulgaria with her husband and son invites a dowser and his spirited daughter to search for hidden springs on their property. Wonderfully atmospheric, the film gracefully depicts how the teenaged girl’s combative nature and the oppressive heat all upset the family’s balance, for good and bad.
