In Once there was a Girl, her directorial debut, Natalie Kaplan sets out to explore a range of concepts such as intimacy, womanhood, loneliness, and sexuality by observing her protagonist, Noa – a solitary woman-child figure who can’t get to sleep at night, and who craves intimacy and human connection. She goes about finding her place in the world through a series of encounters and sexual experimentations with a young soldier whom she dabs, ‘the boy,’ her older GP, and her next door neighbour. Once there was a Girl took home the Best Film award at Greece’s Lifeart Film Festival. Additionally, it was shown at countless other festivals, worldwide – including ones in India, Italy, and Brazil, to name but a few.
