Talks Volia Chajkouskaya
Cinema should feel like real life
In a brand new talk with Aliaksei Paluyan, the director of the film "Lake of Happiness", we discuss his path from the IT sphere to the cinema, wisdom in directing, and behind-the-scenes.

"If a film feels like life, now that's what I call a real film," these words are the keynotes of the new VODBLISK talk. We talk about how "Lake of Happiness" echoes the personal story of the director and how he discovered Nastya Platz, the performer of the main role, in the Mogilev orphanage.

Watch this emotional conversation with Aliaksei Paluyan about the balance between the actor's freedom and the director's control, about the long and continuous study, and about the numerous challenges in the film process.
