Loznitsa’s debut, My Joy, is the first Ukrainian film ever to compete for the Palme d’Or. Truck driver Georgi gets sucked into what seems to be a nightmare on a bizarre road trip as ghosts of national history clash with real life on this suspenseful and at times bitingly funny road trip. With the cinematographer Oleg Mutu, who shot 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days, among other Romanian classics, Loznitsa’s award-winning feature is mysterious and consistently moving.
