Ammon News - The Russian Film Days three-day event, organized by the Royal Film Commission (RFC) and the Russian Film Festival, kicked off Monday evening at the RFC's open-air cinema.

The event is screening three films with Arabic and English subtitles; the first of which was the family adventure "A dog named Palma," the tragicomedy "First snow" and the historical drama "A Frenchman."

A dog named Palma (2020), directed by Alexander Domogarov Jr., is a family adventure film. The film, which is based on a true story, centers around Palma, a German Shepherd who is forced to part with her owner who flies abroad, leaving the faithful dog on the airfield. Palma hides at the airport and meets planes every day in the hope that her owner has returned. There, she meets Nine-year-old Kolya, who lost his mother and moved in with his father, a pilot, whom he hardly knows. Palma becomes the boy’s soul mate and best friend.

First Snow (2021), directed by Natalya Konchalovskaya, is a tragicomedy about the relationship between mother and daughter. The work raises philosophical and social questions about following conventional ideas about what constitutes success and happiness.

A Frenchman (2019), directed by Andrey Smirnov, is a historical drama that centers around French student Pierre Duran, who comes to Moscow in 1957 for an internship at Moscow State University, where he meets Bolshoi ballet dancer Kira Galkina and photographer Valera Uspensky. For a year in Moscow, Pierre lives a life completely different from anything he has known as he searches for his father.
