From Blois to Kyiv via Genoa!
Vertigo is very proud to announce that Joanna Grudzinska's film NOT ALL ME WILL DIE, is making a string of festival selections this October. Presented last week-end in Blois (France) as part of the 26th. Rendez-vous de l'Histoire, it will be in competition from 18th to 22nd at Flight | Mostra internazionale del cinema di Genova (Italy), and from 21st of to 29th at the 52nd edition of Molodist International Film Festival in Kyiv! The official letter from the directors of this Ukrainian world-famous event is very moving:
« Despite russia’s ongoing war against our nation and culture, we believe it’s essential to maintain the cultural life in Ukraine, and being the country’s leading film event we are confident in the festival’s crucial role in advancing cultural connections with other countries, and in remaining active in diplomacy by means of film. »
Unfortunately, NOT ALL ME WILL DIE still can't be shown in Poland, due to the lack of the distribution authorization I've been waiting for from the Polish Film Institute... since the spring of 2022. But as the Poles say: "Hope dies last".
