The First Film: An Interview with Kantemir Balagov

The Russian filmmaker discusses his move from directing Quentin Tarantino-inspired web series to making his feature debut, “Closeness”.
After premiering Kantemir Balagov's feature debut Closeness at the 70th Cannes Film Festival, we had a chance to sit down and discuss the new film with its director.
Phenomenal debut and a harrowing film. The main actress is a genius, but the actors supporting her, especially her fictional parents, are astounding too. Brave and bold work for everyone.
