Volodymyr Tykhyy is a filmmaker and producer from Chervonohrad, Ukraine, who studied Feature Film Directing at the Kyiv State Institute of Theatrical Art. He began his career directing commercials and has since made a large number of short films, features, and documentaries. Currently, he is directing the documentary web-series Babylon’13 dedicated to the Ukrainian social and social and cultural revolution of 2013-2015. Volodymyr Tykhyy also is the author, director and co-producer of the Mudaky.Arabesky and Ukraine, Goodbye! projects.

The Gateway is a mystical thriller about a family living in the Chornobyl exclusion zone. The matriarch, Baba Prisia, lives in the zone with her daughter Slava and her grandson, the adult but childlike Vova. The genre of The Gateway is difficult to categorise, but the film unfolds as a kind of fable, sprinkled with dark humour and science fiction elements.

Dr Olenka Pevny, Director CUS, will welcome and introduce the speaker and Andrii Smytsniuk, LTO in Ukrainian, will lead the interview.

The event will be held in Ukrainian with a simultaneous English translation and will be followed by a Q&A session. The webinar will be recorded.
