Don Juan (Jerzy Sladkowski | Sweden / Finland | 92 min.)
A four-sided love triangle, spiced with autism, neuroses and life crises in the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod. The 22-year-old autistic young man Oleg is seeking approval and love. He is surrounded by many who want to help him, but no-one succeeds. Suddenly help comes from an unexpected direction.

Presented in Partnership with: IDFA and the Swedish Film Institute


BARMALJOVA is the lovechild of the vocalist Inna Barmash and violist/composer/arranger Lev ‘Ljova’ Zhurbin. Ljova frequently performs with his ensemble Ljova and The Kontraband (in which Inna sings), and works on a multitude of musical projects, often involving film, orchestra, and contemporary dance. Among his close collaborators are Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, the Kronos Quartet, The Knights and Brooklyn Rider. Inna leads the New York-based Gypsy band Romashka (in which Ljova also plays) and recently released an album of “Yiddish Love Songs & Lullabies” as well as “Zing Along Shabes”, focusing on Sabbath songs.
