Granny’s Sexual Life

Speaker: Urška Đukić

“Granny’s Sexual Life” is a Slovenian-French animated documentary by Urška Djukić and Émilie Pigeard. Four old women reflect on their memories of old times when they were young and how different the relationships between men and women were back then. Their voices merge into one single voice, that of the grandmother Vera, who tells her story in proper detail. A trip into the grandmother’s youth and the memories of her intimate life illustrate the status of Slovenian women in the first half of the 20th century.

Urška Djukić studied at the Academy of Arts, University of Nova Gorica.  In 2018, she co-directed The Right One, which premiered at the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight 2019 as part of the SEE Factory Sarajevo Mon Amour omnibus. In the same year, she was selected for the 39th edition of the Cinéfondation Residency, where she developed her first feature film Little Trouble Girls. In 2021, she continued the development of her debut feature at the Torino Film Lab. Urška’s short animated-documentary film Granny’s Sexual Life has won many awards, including the Grand Prix Tampere 2022, EFA-European Film Academy Award 2022 for best short film, and The César Award 2023.
