AND THE MOON STANDS STILL
Directed by Yulia Ruditskaya
November 7, 2017 7:30 pm SOLD OUT
The presence of the moon affects all under its glow. The film explores the lunar cycle and the energies invoked by its radiance. A small monster notices this as well and can’t get enough of the power, till it almost extinguishes it. Based on the motifs from the fairy tale “The Witcher” by Aleksey Tolstoy.
