Never Gonna Snow Again

Sniegu juz nigdy nie bedzie
Polen / Tyskland / 2020 / 1 t. 53 min.
Małgorzata Szumowska, Michal Englert
Rasputin with a massage table

From the ancient Slavic forests, a mysterious figure emerges with strange abilities and a foldable massage table. In a modern city somewhere in Eastern Europe, he encounters a society cursed by a relentless pursuit of material goods and a pathological drive to emulate the West. As he makes his way through the community, the inhabitants start to wake up from their spiritual sleep. NEVER GONNA SNOW AGAIN is a stylish, poetic and hauntingly resonant fable about modernity and identity in post-Soviet Eastern Europe.
