God Exists, Her Name is Petrunya

Gospod postoi, imeto i' e Petrunija

a film by :Teona Strugar Mitevska

In Stip, a small town in Macedonia, every January the local priest throws a wooden cross into the river and hundreds of men dive after it. Good fortune and prosperity are guaranteed to the man who retrieves it. This time, Petrunya dives into the water on a whim and manages to grab the cross before the others. Her competitors are furious - how dare a woman take part in their ritual? All hell breaks loose, but Petrunya holds her ground. She won her cross and will not give it up.

French Synopsis :

A Stip, petite ville de Macédoine, tous les ans au mois de Janvier, le prêtre de la paroisse lance une croix de bois dans la rivière et des centaines d’hommes plongent pour l’attraper. Bonheur et prospérité sont assurés à celui qui y parvient. Ce jour-là, Petrunya se jette à l’eau sur un coup de tête et s’empare de la croix avant tout le monde. Ses concurrents sont furieux qu’une femme ait osé participer à ce rituel. La guerre est déclarée mais Petrunya tient bon : elle a gagné sa croix, elle ne la rendra pas.
