Loving Lorna

Annika Karlsson, Jessica Karlsson, Sweden, 2017, 60’

There’s always been a strong horse culture in Ballymun, outside of Dublin. Lorna and her family are a part of it, and it has helped them through though times. Lorna has a dream to become a ferier and she’s practising during her last summer holiday. However, things might not turn out as planned. This is a poetic coming of age film, a story of survival, relationships, horses and dreams.
