Another short film from the imaginative director, Viatcheslav Kopturevskiy, is a dreamscape of aesthetic beauty about the passions and sorrows of a mid 20’s, post Soviet prostitute, Lora. A woman with just as many misfortunes as fortunes, Lora opposes the domination of her employer and past sexual partners, marking the epoch of her new life. The film was shot primarily in an abandoned hotel in the financial district of Manhattan, adding immensely to the dreamlike and surreal qualities of the film.
