Film The Jump
From 19 November, CURZON Bloomsberry

A chance to watch one of the most popular and internationally awarded film by a Lithuanian director Giedrė Žickytė which is confirmed to be this year's Lithuanian Oscar nominee. This documentary film tells tale of a Soviet sailor who jumped onto a U.S. Coast Guard boat in 1970 in a bid for political asylum. In 1970, in the middle of the Cold War, an American patrol boat meets a Soviet fishing vessel in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Suddenly, a Lithuanian sailor jumps across ten feet of icy water, landing on the deck of the American boat in a frantic bid for political asylum. To his horror, the Americans return him to the Soviets. Told through incredible archival footage and re-lived by the would-be defector Simas Kudirka himself, the tale takes us on a stranger-than-fiction journey of imprisonment, twists of fate, and the price of becoming a symbol of freedom. More information ant tickets: The Jump | DocHouse
