Greta Grinevičiūtė and Kęstutis Cicėnas conjure undeniable chemistry and heartbreakingly complicated, stubborn, and private humanity in Marija Kavtaradze’s (Summer Survivors) sophomore feature.

Contemporary dancer Elena (Grinevičiūtė) meets Dovydas (Cicėnas) when he is assigned to interpret via sign language in a class she is teaching to deaf youth. 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.

Thanks to Conic for this preview. Slow is released on 24 May.
