Dir: Ivan I. Tverdovskiy. Rus-Lith-Ire-Fr. 2018. 90mins
“Karlovy Vary favourite Ivan I. Tverdovskiy follows up Zoology with a very different animal, a lean and mean thriller that offers a potent indictment of the endemic corruption in Russian society. With Tverdovskiy’s growing reputation and some saleable thriller tropes, Jumpman could build upon Zoology’s theatrical showing, with healthy festival attention a given” says Demetrios Matheou.
