Best of Kickstarter: Gennadiy

Gennadiy documentary

Gennadiy runs an orphanage in Mariupal, Ukraine, and for 13 years he has been going on night time raids to rescue, and even force, kids off the street. His methods may be a little controversial, but I can’t help but be inspired by this guy’s passion.

The team behind this film previously won the Grand Jury price at Sundance with their film “Blood Brother”, and now have composer Atticus Ross (known for his work collaborating with Trent Reznor on “The Social Network” and “Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”) on board to score this film. The music you hear in this trailer was composed by Atticus and his brother Leopold Ross.

Watch the trailer below!

    Wow, this is incredibly strong. I feel like this could be a Vice documentary, but the quality and the details of the trailer alone surpasses those on several levels. Thanks for showing it Jeff, even though it’s something you usually don’t feature.

    • ya it isn’t the sort of thing i usually feature but something about it was really compelling. love to see it get made
