“I’m not interested in bad things happening to good people. I’m interested in good people doing bad things.” – Filmmaker Julia Loktev

The breathtaking big-screen beauty of Georgia’s Caucasus Mountains act as backdrop for this thought-provoking allegory about love, betrayal and the ambiguities of forgiveness.

Gael García Bernal and Hani Furstenberg play young lovers who engage a local guide – with a propensity to tell unsettling campfire stories – to lead them on an East European camping trek. A split-section decision triggers a series of events that threatens everything the couple believes about themselves, and each other. Through nuance and – often – silence, filmmaker Julia Loktev (Day Night Day Night) creates an intimate relationship study artfully underscored with a perpetual sense of dread and impending violence.

“Will provoke passionate arguments over post-screening drinks.” – Variety
