Inspired from the true story of a Russian immigrant woman who walked through the USA, Lillian is a tragic and surprising roadmovie. A sort of female Into the Wild in which Patrycja Planik delivers a great performance. We met her, as well as the director Andreas Horvath, to talk about this feature film presented for  The Directors’ Fortnight.
