Lyubov and Sasha (0+)

Russia, 2012, colour, 24 min.
Director: Alena Savyuk
The film shows one day of life of a married couple living in a small house on the bank of the river. Daily domestic chores, preparation of food, fishing, evening talks and songs – one day goes after the other. The spectator becomes a witness of the daily routine that reveals the characters of our heroes and their relationships. Despite conflicts that arise sometimes between them, we could see and feel the true love towards each other that they have managed to retain throughout years of life together.

Attention! All events of the festival times are given in Perm time (GMT+5)
