Made with acute poetry and style, Little Harbour poses a series of questions about adulthood, childhood, and the sensibilities of a wiser-beyond-their-years 10 year old.

Capturing the imagination of audiences in our 2017 program, Iveta Grófová’s Little Harbour impressed crowds with an emotionally true coming-of-age drama, winning the Crystal Bear for Best Film at the 67th Berlinale. Now, presented again five years later, this expressive and tonal tale remains one of contemporary Slovakian cinema's best-looking films, directed by one of the country's most exciting young filmmakers.

Privileging a children’s-eye view, Little Harbour follows 10 year old Jarka who lives in a chaotic Bratislava apartment with her neglectful, fun-loving, young mother and cantankerous, ailing grandmother. Left to fend for herself, Jarka one day finds herself encumbered with abandoned twin infants and opts to raise them with her timid, geeky friend Kristián.
