Before the Dawn

Łukasz Borowski
Przed świtem
Poland 2016 / 27’

An androgynous teenage hairstylist and his father, a former wrestler, cross the wild Albanian mountains. Although they are extremely different, they’re condemned to each other in the crowded interior of the car and face the difficulties of travel together. This intimate portrait of a relationship between men pays homage to unconditional love unfazed by any differences.
