The comedy block has become quite a tradition at #KISFF. The place, Mariinsky Park, hasn’t changed, either. It's going to be hilarious, and this's the main thing. This year’s movies are brutally satirical and make fun not only of their heroes but also of us and the society we live in. And they do it openly, without hiding behind the masks of hypocrisy and buffoonery. Many of them were shown at Sundance, SXSW or Clermont-Ferrand where, by the way, "Black Lady" got the Viewers award! Almost all the films are in English, created in the US, New Zealand and the UK.
