One of the main roles in the teaser, Felix, played by Ukrainian writer Yuri Izdryk. Felix is a former intelligence officer, the soldiers of the GRU, the Soviet army paratrooper and also deeply scarred by the experience of war people.
“The history of our relations Izdryk interesting. When he was just a famous poet, whom I respect in absentia, but then this was fate, in the round, and it was a very strange experience. A month and a half of joint travel and life, a lot of interesting conversations, laughter and great music from a car stereo, but after that, we parted in different directions, and some years we hardly talked. But when I wrote the script, I have caught myself on the fact that the type or image of Felix mentally brings me back to Istriku. Even explaining to other people saying, “Well, Felix somewhere such as Izdryk, only different, of course, experience, with a different background”,” — said Irina Cilic.
Shooting is scheduled for fall 2020. As noted by the Director, the team is still looking for the face of this film, because to talk about our 90s can be very different.”
