Russian Woodpecker

 

A thrilling investigation into the ghosts of the Soviet Union and the mind of an irradiated Ukrainian artist on a quest to discover the ‘criminal’ behind the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Unforgettably eccentric artist Fedor Alexandrovich begins his quest by revealing to the world an enormous secret Soviet weapon that stands in the shadow of Chernobyl, and which Kremlinologists in the 1980s thought might be a giant mind-control device. But what Fedor discovers is much more sinister.

‘Gripping conspiracy thriller, pretentious art biopic, timely political documentary – The Russian Woodpecker is all this and more’. Time Out
