Having won international acclaim with his arthouse features Blind Pig Who Wants to Fly (33rd) and Postcards from the Zoo (36th), Edwin turns to a coming-of-age drama in which a penguin and whale become tokens of love. A romance between a national diving athlete and a new kid in school turns dark when the young man becomes possessive and loses control. Using the symbolic language he is famous for, Posesif pushes us beyond simple narratives to contemplate violent relationships.
