The Loneliest Planet

Friday, October 26 - Thursday, December 13, 2012

Carefree young tourists Alex and Nica (Gael García Bernal and Hani Furstenberg) spend the summer before their wedding backpacking across the Caucasus Mountains with a local guide. They trek through the majestic wilderness, playing games and sharing stories, until a sudden split-second misstep threatens to tear the couple apart. Loktev’s follow-up to IFC Center hit Day Night Day Night is another tense, riveting account of how the smallest decisions can have the most explosive impact.
