“Engagingly made... the story is a simple one, but it is also gently moving.” — Screen Daily
Having screened to great audience reaction at the Toronto and Chicago International Film Festivals, Evgeny Ruman’s moving and poetic exploration of childhood, loneliness and friendship defies age to appeal to cinema lovers of all ages. In the aftermath of his parents’ divorce, 11-year-old Igor (Itai Shcherback) relishes visits with his father, Peter (Tomasz Sobczak) — a scientific bird watcher in the Russian countryside. After Igor witnesses the birth of a baby crane, who he names ‘Karl’, his world is turned upside-down when his mother, Tanya (Ola Schur Selektar), announces they are moving to Israel to start a new life.
