Directed by Antonio Lukich • 2019 • Ukraine
Twenty-five-year-old Vadym (Andriy Lidahovskiy) is a sound recordist and musician dreaming of leaving Kyiv for distant Canada. He seems to have found his route out of Ukraine when he is tasked with capturing the call of a rare duck native to the Carpathians. Unfortunately for Vadym, his overbearing taxi driver mother (Irma Vitovskaya) is along for the ride. Antonio Lukich’s feature debut is an engagingly quirky road movie with a tragicomic eye for human foibles and a bubbling electronic score that travels to the borderlands between the human and the animal, the logical and the irrational.
