Apolonia, Apolonia

From adolescence to the harsh reality of adulthood. A personal, almost indiscreet portrait, filmed over thirteen years in the life of a young and popular painter raised in Parisian bohemia.

Creating an extraordinary work demands extraordinary sacrifice. When the young Apolonia Sokol decides to become an artist, she already knows she has everything against her: instability, a greedy industry that devours everything, and time, which passes quickly and mercilessly. But she has a great asset: her talent, always accompanied by unpredictable outcomes. This intimate and dazzling portrait, filmed over thirteen years, speaks of identity, vocation, and freedom. Apolonia seeks beauty, and to achieve it, she will go to the very end. “They tell me I should separate my identity from my work, but I can’t. They are the same.”
