Maid in Law (Viddana)

Jun 15, 2023 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Maid-in-Law (Viddana) (2020) is a Ukrainian full-length film based on the novel “Felix Austria” by the Ukrainian writer Sofia Andruhovych, which became a “BBC Book of The Year – 2014”. The events of the film take place in the 19th century in the Austro-Hungarian Ukraine. Dr. Unger loses his wife in a fire but manages to save two girls – his own daughter Adele and the daughter of domestic worker Stefania. In a moment of desperation, the doctor decides to raise them together. 25 years have passed. The girls have grown up and are just as inseparable, although Adele is now married. Stefania, on the other hand, manages the household, quenching her passion for cooking. But they still do not understand who they are to each other: sisters and friends, or maid and mistress. In the kaleidoscope of love and jealousy, double meanings, and secrets, the line between reality and fiction finally disappears.
