Closing Night Film World Cinema  AFTER YOU’RE GONE North American Premiere
Sunday, Nov 19, 4pm at Bailey Hall Broward College
6pm Closing Night Party

Aleksey Temnikov is a renowned ballet dancer, and an acknowledged genius whose career was cut abruptly short after sustaining an injury back in the ’90s. Twenty years later, Aleksey discovers that his condition is degenerative, and that he will soon lose the ability to walk. For him, this means only one thing – death. Before this happens, Aleksey sets out to choreograph a ballet. “What will I leave behind after I am gone?” is a question Aleksey feels he must contend with.

Written and directed by Anna Matison, AFTER YOU’RE GONE is a stunning masterpiece pitting a fascinating storyline with razor-sharp dialogue, phenomenal cinematography (how did the DP pull off some of those shots!), and above all, an award winning performance by Sergey Bezrukov as Aleksey Temnikov.  Bezrukov plays him as a genius who is simultaneously a repugnant holier than thou snob and hilarious.

Special Guests: Anna Matison, Sergey Bezrukov
