Drama produced by Sasha Kostina, Jane Yatsuta, Bogna Szewczyk, Claudia Smieja, Laura Briand, Artem Koliubaiev, Alyona Tymoshenko and Giancarlo Nasi.

In 2019 the project was selected to Cannes Cinéfondation RESIDENCE and to Sofia Meetings and also presented within the  Works in progress at Odesa IFF 2021.

Writer and director Dmytro Sukholytkyy-Sobchuk remembers his time at MIDPOINT:

“Everything that happened at MIDPOINT Intensive @KVIFF 2017 was very useful and helpful for our project. When we attended your program, we were between the first and the second stage of our script. We´ve had two tutors who gave us during the sessions very vice recommendations and advice and now I´m glad to share our success with MIDPOINT Institute.“
