Cert:15 Year: 2009 Length:88mins
After 5 years of trying, it is excellent news that we are at last able to screen Volchok. Volchok is a sublime essay on the darker side of human nature and devastatingly compelling to boot.

A story of a mother and a daughter, we are shown a simple and effective story of unconditional love from one side (the child), which does not go away in the face of indifference and even cruelty - a harsh world seen through the eyes of a 7-year old girl.

This is a film that gets under your skin with its overriding despair and grim outlook of life, love and familial bonds yet draws you in through the sheer force of its storytelling and compelling performances. For everyone who loves bold world cinema.
