LOVELESS (2018) - Directed by Andrey Zvyagintsev

Written by Oleg Negin and Andrey Zvyagintsev

 In Loveless, a married couple is going through a vicious divorce marked by resentment, frustration, and recriminations. Already embarking on new lives, both ex-spouses are impatient to start again, to turn the page - even if it means threatening to abandon their 12-year-old son Alyosha. Until, after witnessing one of their fights, Alyosha disappears. Loveless uses its riveting portrait of a family in crisis to offer thought-provoking commentary on modern life in Russia -- and the world beyond its borders.

Introduction and discussion led by Professor Emil Draitser, Russian Program, Hunter College and Regina Khidekel, RACC Director
