Unnerving, enchanting and beautifully shot, Lucile Hadzilalilovic's debut feature, Innocence, follows a year in the life of the girls in the third dormitory at a mysterious, boarding school, where new students arrive in coffins. Based on the German-Expressionist Novella 'Mine-Haha, or On the Bodily Education of Young Girls' by Frank Wedekind, Innocence explores the concept of purity and sexuality.
