Levnadsglad ung kvinna hamnar i sömnig industristad under sin jakt på den amerikanska drömmen, i Belarus Oscarbidrag.

I Darya Zhuks mångfaldigt prisvinnande debutfilm längtar den färgstarka Velya bort från den gråa vardagen i 90-talets Minsk och drömmer om att bli DJ i Chicago. När hon bokar en resa för att fånga sin dröm anger hon ett påhittat telefonnummer i sin visumansökan. Numret visar sig gå till ett hus i Crystal, en stad som är helt uppbyggd kring en nedgången kristallslipningsfabrik. Velya tvingas åka dit och bevaka telefonen för att kunna svara när de ringer om hennes visum. Hon hamnar mitt i lokala bröllopsförberedelser, och ett fantastiskt äventyr tar sin början.

Darya V. Zhuk

Regissör: Darya V. Zhuk

Belarus-born award-winning film director Darya Zhuk has been obsessing about filmmaking long enough to see her short films selected to SXSW, Tarkovsky, Oaxaca, Atlanta, Palm Springs, Koroche, Santa Fe Independent film festivals just to name a few. She is a graduate of Columbia University MFA program in Directing. Darya lives and creates between Minsk and Brooklyn. Crystal Swan is her feature debut.

I’m a Belarus-born film director living in New York. I spent most of my young adult life straddling two worlds: the world of my freshly independent home country, just starting to define its identity after the split from the Soviet Union, and my new home in America where I stayed after finishing an undergraduate degree at Harvard. Most of this straddling, I spent standing in long cues to the US Embassy in Minsk. I visited my parents a lot, and as Belarus was openly critical of US international policy, the visa requirements were quite brutal. It’s in this long line to the embassy that I first thought of Crystal Swan. People waiting on the permission to go to America were like prisoners waiting for their verdict - they were so stressed out that they often shared their whole life stories with strangers next to them. The humiliation people had to experience to apply for a visa wasn’t always what my American friends thought about or knew much about. I wanted to explore what this process is like.
