Goodbye Golovin [Ukraine]

Director: Mathieu Grimard
Cast: Oleksander Rudinskiy, Dasha Plahtiy, Maria Stopnyk

When home is a hopeless place, is it more courageous to stay—or go? For Ian Golovin, his father’s death is an emancipation. Suddenly untethered, he is determined to leave behind the old man’s word, abandon the desolate high-rises, and get out from under his old life to start over.

Screening at over 15 international film festivals, Goodbye Golovin was awarded Best Ukrainian Short Film at the Odesa International Film Festival 2020, as well as a Youth Jury’s Special Mention at Berlinale 2020.
