Duration: 22 min
Usha, an illiterate single mother who works as a farm laborer in rural India, finds herself drawn to a female teacher of local primary school, in ways she never knew possible.

Jedan dan: od nežne zore do najtamnije noći. Jedan od mnogo dana koji tek predstoje? Najverovatnije je poslednji. Dugi oproštaj od života koji nam je vremenom postao drag. Vodi ka skoku u novu realnost, u novo stanje svesti.

Vienna Shorts Festival – Best music video
A single day: from the tender break of dawn to the darkest night. One out of many days to come? Quite possibly the very last. A long farewell, an ultimate goodbye to a life we have grown to hold dear. Leading to a head-on dive into a new reality, into a new state of being.
Ioan Gavriel & Anja Franziska Plaschg
Ioan Gavriel was born in Bern in 1993 as the son of a Romanian violinist and a Swiss architect. He spent his childhood and youth in Vienna, Austria. Through his own animated films and animated work, he discovered his passion for film early on. At the age of 15 he shot the first film-funded short film with professional actors.

Anja Franziska Plaschg grew up in a small village called Poppendorf (near Gnas) in south east Styria, where her parents have a farm. She has played piano since she was six.

She attended the Graz Polytechnic for Graphic Design, but dropped out at 16 and moved to Vienna shortly afterwards.

Her first album, called “Lovetune for Vacuum”, was released in March 2009. It received excellent reviews and placed in the Austrian Top 10. The 2 album also achieved chart positions in Germany, Belgium and France. Music journalists have already claimed to see in her a new star of Austrian pop. Plaschg’s father died in 2009 from a heart attack. During this time, Plaschg stated that she suffered serious depression for which she was hospitalized. The death influenced much of her second album, “Narrow”. In 2010 she won a European Border Breakers Award for her international success. Her tracks “Brother of Sleep” and “Marche Funèbre” were used in the soundtrack for Universal Pictures thriller “War Games: At the End of the Day” in 2010.
