Event description: 

With filmmaker Iryna Tsilyk in person! Set in 1990s Ukraine, this spanning coming-of-age story follows “Tymophii” and his friendship with a peculiar but intriguing older man whose entire life is shrouded in secrecy. Based on the autobiography Who Are You? by Artem Chekh, this drama with glints of humor presents a portrait of post-Soviet life that addresses the traumas of war by shuttling between the domestic and communal. Critic Rich Cline writes, “Shot in superbly visual sets and locations, the film’s narrative unfolds in understated anecdotal scenes that feel bracingly true to life.” 2022, DCP, 92 mins.
