France | French | 15' | Fiction

Ewa is a 10-year-old girl living in a high building in a quiet town. She's an odd, lonely child and for good reason: she's convinced of being a vampire. Fascinated by Hugo, 15, she dreams of turning him into a vampire too, so that she can overcome her loneliness. When Ewa opens up to him, she gets bullied by teenagers from the neighborhood. Hurt in her body and soul, she's ready to act in the creepiest, sickest ways to prove her identity to the world.

Transylvanie is an adorable and hypnotic film that mesmerizes with slow zooms and eerie music. The central question within the film, “Is this tiny child a vampire?” keeps you guessing until the end. With cool and confident filmmaking from auteur Rodrigue Huart, Transylvanie finds its charm through precocious dialogue and sincere performances, offering a unique coming-of-age take on the vampire film genre. — Erin Brown Thomas, Artistic Director
