Eva Nová + Q&A with director Marko Škop and actress Emília Vášáryová
Once a well-known actress, Eva Nová is leaving rehab for the third time determined to start life anew; to pick up her career and make amends with her estranged son Doďo. It was her older sister who brought Doďo up when Eva, pursuing her career and lovers, abandoned him. Fighting resentment and anger built up over the years she doggedly follows the notion of second chances. A heart-felt drama with a brilliant central performance by the leading Slovak actress Emília Vašáryová.

„It's sliver of hope that gives Eva Nová its humility, tenderness and humanity, which is vital in a package so closely resembling an unforgiving and unpredictable reality“
