FEATURED ATTRACTION

LET THE SUMMER NEVER COME AGAIN d. Alexandre Koberidze, 2017 at Close-Up (24 FEB 18:00).

  • Lost Futures & Kinet Media present: A young man leaves his village to audition for a dance company in town. He starts getting involved in illegal activities. He goes to bed with men for money. He falls in love with a man. He starts performing with a dance company. So begins Georgian filmmaker Alexandre Koberidze’s first feature, and before long what may seem like a fairly straightforward film proves itself to be a source of frequent wonders.
