Description

Director Chad Gracia & Artist Fedor Alexandrovich attending.

A Ukrainian victim of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster discovers a dark secret and must decide whether to risk his life by revealing it amid growing clouds of revolution and war.

Chad Gracia’s debut feature launches into contemporary social and political issues facing Russia today while weaving a fascinating tale of conspiracy surrounding the 1986 disaster. Direct from Sundance where it won the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize for Documentary, The Russian Woodpecker will be one of the most absorbing documentaries you will see all year.
