Asia
Support the IFS by screening titles straight from independent distributors who routinely provide us with interesting movies. By clicking "watch now" below you'll be able to watch a theatrical release and the distributor will then split the proceeds 50/50 with the IFS, which in turn helps buy us time while we wait for the green light to return to Muenzinger Auditorium.

This is a film about motherhood, sacrifice, and love. It’s about the ability and the choice to take responsibility for another person's life. Even if it means ultimately letting go...

Asia is the single mother of 17-year-old Vika. Vika’s deteriorating health urges Asia to finally find her voice as a mother and to embrace and cherish their time together. Asia never chose to be a mother, yet she deeply loves her daughter. While Asia devotes herself to caring for Vika, she still cannot quite understand what she, as a mother, can offer her daughter. Asia’s failed attempts at helping Vika, eventually bring them closer together. Asia gets to know her daughter; her fears and her longings. She learns that what Vika needs most is her unconditional love.
