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.

Synopsis

The year is 2041; Julia, Johnny, Tabby, and Finn continue to help their extraterrestrial friend Ling save fantastical endlings. With the aid of their foster father Mr. Leopold and animal activist Dr. Abiona Maina, the group is getting closer to retrieving the remaining “last of its kind’” creatures and completing their mission. But when Ling accidentally shows Tabby a vision of their quest failing, the team learns that Ling’s powers don’t just allow the alien access to their pasts but also their futures. This glimpse of what’s to come reveals Infinitum CEO Tresa Hewes, who has been tracking them for her own illusive reasons, capturing Ling and tearing their foster family apart. Together, the group makes the choice to confront the pain of their pasts in order to change their futures and save Ling. This decision to fight fate kicks off a season of high-octane adventure where four wounded teens must learn to let their hopes, not their hurts, shape the future.

Catch up on Season 1 of Endlings on HULU.
