The New Directors / New Films Festival was created in order to show New York audiences the best of young filmmakers. During its existence, the festival has recognized many filmmakers who represent the present and predict the future, and their audacious work goes beyond - Pedro Almodovar, Spike Lee, Michael Haneke, Wong Kar Wai, Guillermo del Toro, Luca Guadagnino, Christopher Nolan.

Stop-Zemlia is a sensual autobiographical story about exploring yourself. 16-year-old Masha studies in an ordinary Kyiv school. Close friends Yana and Senya help her not to feel strange and detached in the team, experiencing a busy school life in their own way. In addition to future exams, Masha is forced to fall out of her comfort zone by falling in love with her classmate Sasha. She understands that if you do not dare - you will never know if there is something in return.
