Russia 2017 77’
Danila is sixteen. Katya is twice his age. He spends hours watching her out of the corner of his eye from an old shed on the edge of the forest. He does not even think about trying to be with her until Danila’s father shows up on Katya’s doorstep in an attempt to run away from his avalanching problems. Father and son are drawn into turmoil of events where neighbor turns against neighbor, dividing the community into “us” and “them”. The strong show more and more disregard and contempt the weak, pushing everyone’s life towards a disaster.
Born in the North of Russia in the Arkhangelsk Region; now resides in Moscow. Graduated from the Northern Arctic Federal University. Since 2007 working in film and television making in various capacities. The past three years fully dedicated to filming his first feature film named «The Forest».
