To Love...Mikhail Kalik IFFR 2016 73′
Four poignant stories about love and relationships. The film subtly blends fiction and documentary, poetry and sociology, as well as questioning notions of love and marriage, solitude and alienation. Another masterpiece by Mikhail Kalik (see Goodbye, Boys!) that was censored in the USSR.
The 1000 Eyes of Dr. MaddinYves Montmayeur IFFR 2016 65′
