Seventeen-year-old Iva is in the process of coming to terms with the death of her mother. Influenced by this deep personal loss and by the discovery that she didn’t know everything about her mom, the girl slowly immerses herself into an odd, hallucinatory world far from reality, which acts as a catharsis for all her painful feelings. Dominated by a distinctive filmmaking style, History of Love further develops Prosenc’s visually resonant aesthetic.

“Every filmmaker develops his own style. My approach stems from the view that a film’s aim is not one of illustrating a story but creating a cinematic experience by means of the entire spectrum of cinematic aspects – elements that are equivalent and take full effect only as a seamless whole. /…/ If a woman director chooses a different approach, her decision is not influenced by some biochemical processes taking place in her body, as people tend to believe: ‘You women are different, more sensitive.’ No! The eventual differences in style arise from the fact that women directors have to deal with discriminatory power relations, and consequently hold strong political views. This is what might reflect in our work.” (Sonja Prosenc)
