The first fiction film by acclaimed documentarian Sergei Loznitsa, MY JOY is a haunting parable of post-Communist Russia, shot by master cinematographer Oleg Mutu (4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS AND 2 DAYS). Truck driver Georgy (Viktor Nemets) sets out on a provincial Russian highway for a routine delivery, but after a series of chance encounters his journey spirals out of control. A roadside police check, a talkative war veteran and a too-young prostitute lead him to a village from which there appears to be no way out, where the locals struggle to survive a tough, elemental world and the past holds a vise-like grip over their everyday lives. Caught in a merciless dead end, Georgy's unexpected fate is the crux of Loznitsa's unique and original feature debut. Based on true stories the director encountered during his decade-long pilgrimage by road through Russia, MY JOY is a terrifying look into the abyss from an arresting new voice in feature filmmaking.
