Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau have been working together since 1995 and in that time have created a formidable volume of work including the road movie The Adventures of Felix (2000) which won the Jury Prize Teddy Award at the 2000 Berlin Film Festival. Over the years their work has been screened at many of the leading festivals including Locarno and received awards such as the Jean Vigo Prize in 2009 for the film Family Tree. Their latest collaboration, Theo & Hugo Paris 5:59 was presented at the 2016 Berlin Film Festival in the Panorama Section, and has met with rave reviews from the critics and is one of the must see films of the year.

“It's the first time we come to Russia to show one of our films and we are very proud of to be coming. We have been making movies for 18 years, promoting new images of gay people, images which are happy, full of hope and love. Theo and Hugo is, among all our movies, the one which deals only with love, and sex, and freedom, and the right to be yourself. We hope those images will help the audience to be more free and happy. Love is all we deserve.”
