How to Save a Dead Friend
Marusya Syroechkovskaya — SwedenNorwayFranceGermany — 2022 — 103'
Marusya and Kimi are inseparable lovers coming-of-age as Russia’s authoritarian dreams take hold. Turning Marusya’s camera on themselves, the two capture the euphoric anxiety of their youth, burning the candle at both ends — but as one light burns brighter, the other may be extinguished forever. A message from a silenced generation.
