The Unpolished


Directed by Pia Marais

- +

Pia Marais' semi-autobiographical debut feature recounts the adolescence of Stevie (Ceci Schmitz-Chuh), a resourceful 14-year-old girl who finds methods of her own to cope with the unstable upbringing afforded her by her hippy parents.

When the family moves to a small town in Germany, Stevie attempts to forge a 'normal' life for herself. While her parents spend their days getting high, the house filled with aimless hangers-on, Stevie does her best to make an impression on her new classmates, weaving her own narrative of an imaginary homelife that is stable, comfortable and conventional.
