We are happy to help announce that "NAME ME" - debut film by Nigina Sayfullaeva will take part in the international competition 62th San Sebastian Film Festival for "New Directors" ~ first or second feature films.
Per Elena Podolskya "Try to perceive the film as "a female version" of "The Return" by Andrei Zvyagintsev with the same actor in a leading role" included in the cast are some names you may be familiar with Konstantin Lavronenko (main character in "The Return" (2003) & "The Banishment" (2007) by Anrey Zvyagintsev, Alexandra Bortich and Marina Vasilieva. The film was in Crimea until the annexation of the region by Russia, making the situation rather unique.
Keep an eye out for more info on this and several other Russian films, as news from the area continues to come in to us! Until then
до свидания ~ do svidaniya!
