  • Genre: Drama

  • Locations:  A big part of the film would be filmed in Russia. Other filming locations are Italy and one other European country (either France or Germany). Minor parts will be filmed in Donetsk.
  • Directors: Maya Nogradi and Luca Belardi
  • Screenplay: Mauro Belardi, Maya Nogradi and Luca Belardi

We are aiming to establish an Italian-Russian co-production, with the participation of European and Western co-productions who would favor the distribution of the film in Europe and North and South America.

Our main source of inspiration is the Soviet arthouse cinema of Menshov, Bondarchuk, Bortko, Kalatozov, Mikhalkov,  Daneliya, Shukshin and Tarkovsky. The film therefore would require a producer who is sensitive to such values.
