Slamdance Film Festival will open with world premiere of Lynne Sachs’ Film About a Father Who, an exploration of her father, Ira Sachs Sr., a bon vivant and pioneering businessman from Park City, Utah.
NAME OF FILM: LILLIAN
DIRECTOR(S): Andreas Horvath
STARRING: Patrycja Planik
GENRE: Drama Film
SYNOPSIS: After missing her chance to leave the United States in the proper manner, Lillian decides to return to her native Russia on foot – from New York, across the entire continent. This remarkable observational piece, which lulls the audience like a slowly advancing horizon, dispenses with the usual dramatic approaches in order to sketch a pilgrimage across the vast landscape. And the mere absence of society’s watchful eye can lead to happiness.
