Villa Antropoff

Latvia / Estonia, 2012 (MIFF 2012, Animation)

Director: Vladimir Leschiov, Kaspar Jancis

Villa Antropoff

An African man impulsively sets off swimming across the sea, while an opulent and decadent wedding party for a gangster and his bride takes place on the land he is swimming towards. An absurd, surreal and deadpan tale of materialism.
