The film "Dylda" directed by Kantemir Balagov will participate in the 72nd Cannes Film Festival

       The film is nominated for the Queer Palm prize, which is awarded to the best LGBT-relevant films.

      "Dylda" is the second feature film of a 27-year-old director who graduated from the Alexander Sokurov Studio. His debut film titled Closeness was demonstrated in the Special View section of the Cannes Film Festival and won the FIPRESCI prize.

      The film Dylda was produced by Alexander Rodnyansky, who mostly collaborates with
film director Andrey Zvyagintsev, without the support of public funds.
