Twist And Shout

Ten-year-old Moja (Loti Kovacic) lives with her grief-stricken Slovenian father Milos (Gregor Bakovic) and pregnant twenty-year-old sister Vesna (Mackenzie Mazur) in the outer suburbs of Melbourne. Unable to accept the reality of her mother's sudden passing, Moja instead focuses on preparing for the baby while Vesna struggles to take responsibility as an expecting parent. Despite the growing strain in their relationship, Moja pushes on, hoping in vain that Vesna will eventually fill the "mother-shaped hole" in her life. It is not until Moja meets and befriends Miranda (Claudia Karvan) and her quirky daughter Danger (Flora Feldman) that she begins to realize that brighter days lie ahead. Featuring a "revelatory" performance by Loti Kovacic and hailed as "one of the best Australian features in recent memory" (FilmInk), MOJA & VESNA marks the debut of writer/director Sara Kern who adapted the film from her award-winning short Vesna Goodbye.
