Who is Gennadiy?
Gennadiy works through the political system as an activist, and he runs an orphanage, but the system doesn’t work fast enough for him—or for the thousands of street kids who live in his city of Mariupal, Ukraine, most of whom are addicted to a lethal cocktail of injected cold medicine and alcohol. So at night, he goes on raids for the lost children in the ruins of this empire.
In 2012 we approached Atticus Ross (best known for his award winning score work alongside Trent Reznor in the films ‘The Social Network’ and ‘The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo’) to write music for the Blood Brother end credits. Unfortunately he was too busy working on the Nine Inch Nails album at the time but we stayed in contact and tried again with our early Gennadiy footage. He called it a ‘powerful experience’ describing Gennadiy as a project he ‘couldn’t say no to’. The music for the Kickstarter campaign was written with his brother Leopold Ross. They will work together with Claudia Sarne to create the score for Gennadiy.
The Gennadiy Kickstarter has just been launched! Click here for tons more info about the film, and also more about how to donate and what you can get from helping fund the film!
