In Eastern Ukraine, Terry and his team of forensic doctors are working on the crash of the Malaysia Airlines MH17 flight. Rushed by their proximity to the ongoing conflicts, they must identify as fast as possible the corpses of their fellow countrymen.

SERGUEI is a very interesting short film, well-directed, with good writing, acting and photography. The work depicts the slow unveiling of human reality, that camouflages in front of the tragedy of war. And yet, despite this, it emerges. SERGUEI is capable of bringing down the wall of soldiers’ toxic masculinity and to reveal their more intimate and deep humanity.

SERGUEI won the Ennesimo Critics Choice Prize at Ennesimo Film Festival, Mention of the Critics at Amarcort Film Festival, Best Editing at GIFF International Film Festival and was in competition at Figari Film Festival, Alpinal Short Film Festival, Festival War On Screen and Filmets Badalana Film Festival.
