Hemel

Directed by Sacha Polak
Year: 2012
Running Time: 83 minutes
Country: Spain, Netherlands
Language: Dutch w/English subtitles

Sacha Polak's debut feature is a frank and explicit look at carnal desire that is told from a distinctly female perspective. She paints an erotically charged portrait of a woman whose casual sexual encounters mask a loneliness and a craving for intimacy. Hemel (Hannah Hoekstra) is a young woman who drifts through a series of anonymous one-night stands and seems only close to her father. When he finds himself a girlfriend, Hemel's jealousy puts her on the emotional edge. An emotionally and physically raw study of sexuality that is nothing less than mesmerizing.

"Visually sensual...powerful...if you want to find out the naked truth about passion and lack of love go and see struggles of Hemel." - Nis Magazine
