LIGHT UP is a first full-length film of a famous actor and beginning but acclaimed director Kirill Pletnyov.  Up to 2017 he was winning awards for his short films (6:23 and Nastya). Full-length debut of Pletnyov aroused critics’ and film lovers’ great interest. 

Rostov festival attendees will have an opportunity to shape their own opinion about the film after watching it and meeting Kirill Pletnyov in person.  We can’t compete with the director in explaining why Rock IT is considered highly motivational. He said in a statement: «The message of the film is that people forbid themselves to be happy. We all know what we want. But there exists a burden of responsibility for family or parents. There is a certain imprint of upbringing that leads us away from what we really want. It is a rare case when people dare to free themselves and step outside these boundaries».
