Screening of Tender kisses are hard to find.
Inês Ponte’s film Tender Kisses are Hard to Find has been selected for the official programme of the Kratovo Ethnographic Film Festival. The festival will take place from 2 to 4 October in Skopje, Macedonia.
Tender kisses are Hard to Find is about my grandparents’ relationship, who have known one another since childhood. Of very different characters, the familiarity underpinning their relationship has been crafted over time: both by the small episodes of everyday life, as well as by the longer duration of their lives.Inês Ponte
