Anamesa animates the last page of a young girl’s journal, just before she enters her teens. The story is narrated by her future self, and it takes place in Ouranoupolis, on the boarders of Mount Athos where women are prohibited from entering. Through a collage of images and words, in this setting, Anamesa explores the boarders of childhood and adolescence.
