Love Story sees director Florian Habicht finding a movie and a beautiful Ukranian on the streets of New York. The offbeat romance is part love letter to New York City, part the story of Florian and Masha... and possibly even part true. Along the way, real life New Yorkers pitch in with their own ideas of what should happen next. Love Story won Aotearoa awards for Best Film and Director, and raves from Variety and the NZ Herald’s Peter Calder — who described Auckland Film Festival audiences gasping at the "strange, surprising and wildly romantic ideas sprinkled through it".
