That Which Does Not Kill


Ada is 19. She agrees to have dinner at the home of a boy she knows. It all happens very quickly, she does not defend herself. It is in 2013, after a screening of her first film, that Alexe Poukine meets her: a woman of her age who shares with her something that happened nine years before and that she does not know what to do with. Now inhabited by this account and its implications, the filmmaker confronts the contradiction between her preconceptions about rape and the acknowledged fact that many of her close friends have endured a similar experience.
