Vesper | Kristina Buožytė, Bruno Samper | LT/FR/BE 2022 | 112 Min | DCP

In a desolate future, the giant buildings of the rich and powerful—called Citadels—tower over the have-nots. One of them is the young whip-smart Vesper, who takes care of her paralyzed father and looks for ways out of their desperate situation. When an orbital glider crash-lands near her, and she discovers a young woman in it who was on her way to a Citadel, Vesper recognizes an opportunity. With their English-language debut, Vesper, the Latvian director duo Kristina Buožytė and Bruno Samper have created a deeply compelling science-fiction world. Elegant!
