HOW TO SAVE A DEAD FRIEND
US PREMIERE As a suicidal 16-year-old Marusya Syroechkovskaya falls in love with a humorous grunge kid named Kimi. Fueled by drugs and music, the inseparable couple films the euphoria, anxiety and misery of their precarious existence under the shadow of their oppressive government. Captured over 12 years, this raw, exuberant, and moving love story, provides insight into a silenced generation of rebellious youths struggling to survive in Putin’s Russia. – Ruth Somalo
The first screening will be followed by a Q&A with Marusya Syroechkovskaya, co-producer Anita Norfolk
