When It Blinds, Open Your Eyes

Wenn es blendet, öffne die Augen

Directed by Ivette Löcker
Austria, 2014


Zhanna and Lyosha are survivors. The couple, now in their mid-thirties, became heroin addicts in the turbulent years of upheaval in Russia. They know their days are numbered, and pit their frail zest for life and gallows humor against this fact.
