We're thrilled to be able to present this UK Premiere of LOOKING FOR VENERA as part of our CFF@Home Online Exclusive strand.

Calm, taciturn teenager Venera lives in a small village in Kosovo. At home, three generations are constantly under one another’s feet in their cramped house, so she has hardly any privacy. Outside too, on the streets and in the café, it’s not much better: there’s always a brother, nephew or neighbour keeping a beady eye on her. A girl is expected above all else to protect her good reputation – and that of her family. All this makes it difficult for Venera to go her own way. Her spirits lift when she makes friends with rebellious Dorina. Caught in the throes of her emerging sexuality, Venera is pushed to follow open minded Dorina, who's attitude is far more thrilling than anything that surrounds her.
