Dmytro Sukholytkyy-Sobchuk is the director of Pamfir, a gripping and visually engaging film about Ukranian traditions, borders and the unconditional love of a father. In this talk he tells Angelo Acerbi about the inspiration for the film , his artistic and narrative choices and his position as an artist in these times of war for his country.

Pamfir: Western Ukraine, on the eve of a traditional carnival. Pamfir returns to his family after months of absence. Their love is so unconditional that when his only child starts a fire in the prayer house, Pamfir has no other choice but to reconnect with his troubled past to repair his son’s fault. He will be taken on a risky path with irreversible consequences.
