Film director: Andreas Horvath



Andreas Horvath has shown us something very specific with simple but essential shots. And so, this interesting Zoo Lock Down immediately proves to be an extremely topical and necessary documentary. A simple and at the same time refined work that makes a studied minimalism its workhorse. At the Diagonale’23.



Inspired by a story that really happened in the 1920s, that of a young Russian girl – Lillian Alling, in fact – who attempted to return to Russia on foot directly from New York, Lillian – directed by Andreas Horvath and produced by Ulrich Seidl – is actually a magnetic, painful, but also exciting and fascinating film, which perfectly keeps the audience’s attention high from beginning to end. At the Cannes Film Festival 2019, as part of the Directors’ Fortnight.
