Main Cast: Andriy Lidagovskiy, Irma Vitovska-Vantsa
In this inventive and clever Ukrainian comedy, twenty-five-year-old Vadym earns a living recording and selling all kinds of different sounds; nevertheless, he’d rather exchange his life in Kiev for a better future in far-flung Canada. And so, when he gets a generous job offer which might help him realise his dream, he jumps at the chance; he soon sets off to record the sounds of animals indigenous to Ukraine and also a rare bird native to the Carpathians. The situation proves somewhat more complicated when Vadym’s companion on the trip turns out to be his mother… To the sounds of a synthesised music score, debuting Ukrainian director Antonio Lukich skilfully unfolds a visually creative and very funny road movie. With a real understanding of tragicomedy, Lukich is a talent to watch and we are excited to present the Irish premiere in Kilkenny.
