CLOSING CEREMONY

FALL FOR ALI (THE LAWYER)

Lithuania. 2020. 97 '. Fiction. VOSTF.
Director and screenplay: Romas Zabarauskas
With: Eimutis Kvosciauskas, Dogac Yildiz, Darya Ekamasova.

A disillusioned lawyer from Vilnius divides his time between his superficial friendships and short-lived conquests. On the death of his father, whom he no longer frequented, he went to Belgrade where he formed a privileged and unexpected relationship with a handsome Syrian refugee who awakened in him feelings of love that he no longer thought he would feel.

Lithuanian filmmaker Romas Zabarauskas has made a name for himself in his country as an activist in LGBT struggles - notably defending the feminist lesbian punk-rock group Pussy Riot in Russia. After You Can't Escape Lithuania (Chéries-Chéris 2016), he returns with this beautiful sentimental and atmospheric drama. In addition to the splendid interpretation of the duo of actors, the film is illustrated by its very original scenario and its excellent realization, composing a unique atmosphere, between melancholy, tenderness and poetic flashes.

The screening will take place in the presence of the film crew.
