Jenna Bass’s film has been the opening film of Panorama at Berlinale 69. The story of three women, completely different and forced to run and fight together in a western-based thriller was perfect for Jenna to convey the issue of female empowerment and female affirmation that the film strongly describes. A choice that came up while developing the film, as she tells us.

Flatland: Two young women are on the run through South Africa’s hinterland, hotly pursued by a policewoman who is trying to solve a murder case. A fast-paced road movie about female self-empowerment and a divided country.
