Erased / Izbrisana (2018)

85 min / fiction feature, Feature Film

Ana gives birth in the local hospital and everything goes well. There is only a small bureaucratic problem: Ana is not on file. It must be a software glitch, nothing serious. After a few days, Ana finds herself entangled in a web of Kafkaesque proportions: not in the computer means no social security, no permanent address. Ana is suddenly a foreigner, even though she has spent all of her life in Slovenia. Legally, she does not exist. Her child is therefore an orphan. And orphans can go up for adoption. On 26 February 1992, the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Slovenia erased 25,671 of its own nationals. The majority of those are still unable to regain their legal status.
