W cieniu drzewa (Under the Tree / Undir Trenu)

This dramedy about family life focuses on various aspects of a shared existence. The film's main protagonist Atli is accused of betrayal and thrown out of his home, forced to move in with his parents. His ex-fiancee and the mother of his child cuts him off completely and makes it impossible for him to see his four-year-old daughter. At the same time, an old conflict between Atli's parents and their neighbours resurfaces and escalates daily. The dispute is over a beautiful old tree that grows in Atli's parents' backyard and casts a shadow over the neighbours' terrace. The neighbours demand that the tree be cut down, but Atli's parents won't hear of it. Atli is slowly sucked into this dispute, while his own problems reach new dimensions.

The 74th Venice International Film Festival runs from August 30 through September 9, 2017.

The festival's official website is available at www.labiennale.org/en/cinema/2017.
