Influencer Screening – Never Gonna Snow Again

See Jane Video

by Małgorzata Szumowska, co-directed by Michał Englert

Synopsis:
A masseur from the East enters the lives of the rich residents of a bland, walled off community. Despite their wealth, the residents emit an inner sadness, a longing. The mysterious newcomer’s hands heal, his eyes seem to penetrate their souls. To them, his Russian accent sounds like a song from the past, a memory of their seemingly safer childhood. Zhenia, for this is his name, changes their lives.

We also had the privilege of speaking with the women who brought this story to life. Institute CEO, Madeline Di Nonno sat down with the films Writer/Director, Malgorzata Szumoswka and Actors, Weronika Rosati and Maja Ostaszewska to chat about the film.
