International PREMIERE

Maya Dardel

Part of the American Dreams Strand


Lena Olin shines in this cleverly made drama as Maya Dardel, an intellectual and astute poet and novelist living out her days in the idyllic splendour of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Maya announces on the radio that she is going to end her life and that young male writers may compete to become her heir and executor of her will. Her interview techniques are both sexual and intellectual, as she looks to find the right man to promote her posthumous reputation.
