HI, TERESKA (2001) [Feature]

Poland (MIFF 2003 , International Panorama)
Director: Robert Glinski

In Poland they're called the 'Blocker Generation', Eastern Europe's version of the A Clockwork Orange's Nadsat youth. With no life goals, no values and no sense of 'good' and 'evil', they drift through hours of cigarettes, drink, drugs and excess. Tereska is a sensitive girl dreaming of a career in fashion design but trade school and the new friends she makes there detour her down a different, and dangerous, path. A decidedly unhealthy relationship with a crippled janitor, her couch potato parents trapped in a housing estate and disillusionment pull her inexorably toward the violent crime that will shatter her life.
