Today in VB: column "Ayka vs. Ayganym"
 
 

 

Sergey Dvortsevoy

Russia, Germany, Poland, Kazakhstan, China, 2018, 100 Min

 

She needs money – urgently. And because Ayka is a woman, she works hard for it. And even harder because she is a Kyrgyz migrant with an expired work permit. Moreover, she has just become a mother, so the normal madness in Moscow's winter becomes a life-threatening trip. Physical performances, a gentle camera, an uncanny film.

 

 

 

Zhanna Issabayeva
Kazakhstan, 2018, 88 Min

 

Rejected / Otvergnutye

Outcast sister, brutal brother. Both will perish. For the landscape is rough and idyllic, and life in it is full of violence.
