New month, new student documentary on NPO Doc. This months pick is The Love Agency by Martina Carlstedt. Three times a charm, this is already the third film of the talented Martina to be seen at a Breaking Ground event!

We are far away from the Internet dating world when we gain entrance to the little office where Svetlana runs her Love Agency. Men and women from Arkhangelsk, in northwest Russia, come to her with the same dream: to find a partner in life. It’s never too late to fall in love, says Svetlana. But when people with different hopes and experiences are brought together, it is not always easy to find the perfect match.

You can watch the film on NPO Doc at the following dates:

Sunday May 4 - 16:09
Thursday May 8 - 23:12
Friday May 9 - 11:08
