As if Waiting for a Bus

Ivan I. Tverdovsky
Russia, 2009, 20 Min

Young people in the provinces. The men drive restlessly from one housing estate to another. At a bus stop Vlada is waiting for the bus, which anyway will never arrive. They give her a lift. They get drunk. Have sex. That's just the way it is. And then back at home. Vlada dreams of escaping the narrow confines of the provinces. To go where the jobs are. And of money. And a bus that actually comes. A film school production made at Moscow's VGIK.
