Slow is coming to UK cinemas on 24 May

Slow, by Marija Kavtaradze, is coming to UK cinemas next week, distributed by Conic.

If you did not manage to catch this gem of a film during our festival in December (a sold-out show), this is the perfect opportunity to experience it in UK cinemas from 24 May.

For cinema listings, please check out Conic's website and make sure to follow them on socials for more updates.

Winner of the Directing Award: World Cinema Dramatic at Sundance 2023, Slow follows a relationship story of two 30-year-olds. Contemporary dancer Elena meets Dovydas when he is assigned to interpret via sign language in a class she is teaching to deaf youth. Their connection is immediate, kinetic, and frictionless. As they gravitate toward each other, resisting the forces and interventions of their separate daily lives, their bond deepens from platonic to romantic. When Dovydas discloses his asexuality, the couple commit themselves to honouring their individual needs in tandem. As they continue to weave more tightly together, they struggle to negotiate sacrifice and compromise and are forced to discover the edges of their generosity toward the other.
