YARAT Contemporary Art Space is delighted to invite you to the screening of “The Habit of Breaking up”, a film directed by Yekaterina Telegina (Russia).

The Habit of Breaking up / 2013 / Russia / 90 min / Drama / Colour

“A habit of breaking up” is a story of a girl who knows that to have a short glimpse of happiness you need to walk a huge distance. We’re always torn by self-contradictions and doubts, unable to tell why we break with the people we love and the people who love us back. Why do we not have a freedom to stop in this journey and settle down? We can ask ourselves a thousand questions. We can ask those questions to people we used to be close to. But we do it all in order to find our real self.
