Sergei Loznitsa's My Joy at the main competition of the 7th GOLDEN APRICOT

This year Sergei Loznitsa presents his first feature film My Joy at the 7th GOLDEN APRICOT Festival. The film is about a man who veers off the road and gets lost in the wild open spaces of the Russian provinces, becoming immersed in a world that transforms his personality – a world of fear, cruelty and treachery. “When I write a script, a feature film is more looked at, while a documentary is just filmed, the reality is witnessed and the situation is controlled”, said Sergei Loznitsa, mentioning that documentary and feature films can quite often be the same.

The director confessed that he likes his own films. For Sergei Loznitsa GOLDEN APRICOT Festival is unique given its warm hospitality. “I have a chance to meet many interesting people and to watch many good films, which is not that often possible in other festivals”, mentioned the director.
