Mouth of Truth

Director:Barbara Vekarić


Run time:18'



Stefani has asymmetrical breasts, which becomes a difficult secret to conceal when her high school goes on a trip to a spa hotel with a swimming pool. Stefani navigates her sexual anxiety amid increasing pressures from her friends and the boy she likes, but when someone discovers the padding in her bra, Stefani takes drastic action to subdue the growing rumors about her. Barbara Vekarić’s unusual perspective on the pressure young girls face to submit to society’s idealized vision of their bodies, is a true eye-opener, filled with a daring tension that is bound to force FEST audiences to reflect on their own actions.
