Exile Exotic
Sasha Litvintseva in conversation with Vladimir Nadein

Sasha and Vladimir talk about how Exile Exotic, which was shot 5 years ago, has gained new relevance today, in light of the current pandemic. "We are all in some kind of exile, travelling only vicariously."

Film director Sasha Litvintseva talks about her movie Exile Exotic (2015) together with Vladimir Nadein, co-founder and director of MIEFF (Moscow International Experimental Film Festival). Exile Exotic is the first movie featured in “Other Zones”, the program of bi-weekly online screenings curated by Vladimir Nadein for the 2020 Russian Federation Pavilion.
