Slow 15

Marija Kavtaradze, Lithuania, 2023, 108m.

From Sundance-winning Lithuanian director Marija Kavtaradze comes a modern love story about two people exploring how to build their own kind of intimacy. When dancer Elena meets sign language interpreter Dovydas their instant connection bodes well for a romantic relationship. But when Doyvdas reveals he’s asexual, their dynamic changes as both try to find a way to be together while fulfilling their respective needs.

Winner: World Cinema Directing Award (Sundance 2023)

Lithuania's official entry for Best International Feature Film at the 96th Academy Awards®

The Garden Cinema View:

From the tactile grain of the 16mm film stock, the unobtrusive handheld cinematography, and the easy chemistry of the leads, Slow provides a naturalistic and authentic depiction of a relationship. A film about issues (asexuality, trust, boundaries) which never in any way feels like an ‘issue movie’. Rather, this loose and lovely study of working out the configuration of being together is a pleasure to immerse yourself in; and to think about how we communicate our emotional interiors (options including but not limited to contemporary dance and sign language).

The screening Thursday May 23 was followed by a Q&A with writer-director Marija Kavtaradze.
