Lyonia’s Horse and Lyonia (0+)

Russia, 2006, colour, 30 min.
Director: Iosif Trakhtengerts
The main character is Leonid Turyshev, who lives in the village of Palauz, Sysolsky region of the Komi Republic. The horse Matros and the pig Paul are his best friends. The lives of his «friends» are naturally interwoven with his own. They won’t listen to anyone — not even Leo Tolstoy — when deciding how they should live.

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