Directed by: Andrei Kravchuk

Synopsis: It is not difficult to detect the documentarian behind Andrei Kravchuk’s winning feature debut. The Italian is a very human and sympathetic study of a young boy in the grim world of a Russian orphanage that carries overtones of Charles Dickens. The adults scheme while the children plan their escapes or simply try to negotiate their way through lives with little future. Kravchuk seamlessly depicts the harsh reality of this environment while remaining open to the dramatic possibilities offered by the story of six-year-old Vanya.
