On arriving in Holland Bingo, an immigrant from Moldavia, moves into a tiny flat which he shares with two other people who have come from the East. Although things are tough to begin with and their jobs are unpleasant, Bingo doesn’t lose his sense of humour or his dream of one day returning to his country.

Director bio

Ismailov was born in Baku, Azerbaijan. As a child he received painting classes at the children’s art gallery of his home town. After finishing high school, he studied Political and Social Sciences at the local university. In 1995 he moved to Turkey with his family, and a year later he took up residence in Kaliningrad, Russia, where he studied Management, Economy and Philosophy. He has been the singer in several rock bands. In 2002 he settled in Holland, and two years later he was admitted to the Netherlands Film and Television Academy, where he began to study screenwriting, going on to direct his own short films. His end of course project, Bingo (2009), has been presented at various festivals both in Holland and abroad.
