SOFIA MEETINGS' project «PAMFIR» was selected for «Directors’ Fortnight» programme at Cannes 2022

On April 19, Cannes announced the program of the «Directors’ Fortnight», an independent section founded in 1968 as an alternative to the film festival. This year it selected the debut drama by Dmytro Sukholytkyy-Sobchuk «PAMFIR», which will be shown from 17 to 28 May. The film’s script, which was written by Dmytro Sukholytkyy-Sobchuk («Weightlifter»), was developed at the Cannes International Film Festival Cinéfondation Residence.

The film is about a good family man, Pamfir, who commits a crime for the sake of his family. The events take place during the feast of Malanka and are based on the biblical story of Abraham.

Filming took place in the Carpathians and Bukovyna in the fall of 2020, and the main roles were played by Olexandr Yatsentyuk, Solomiya Kyrylova («Leopolis Night»), Olexandr Yarema («Numbers»), Rymma Zyubina («The Nest of the Turtledove») and locals.
