Ukrainian Sheriffs

In Stara Zburjivka, southern Ukraine, Viktor and Volodya has been designated as the “sheriffs” of the mayor himself. The mission is to keep track on the city’s residents with their yellow old Lada, they go around and tackle everything from duck thefts to death matters in a city where time seems to have stood still for decades. But in the East the unrest of the country is escalating and developed into outright war. When the men of the village begin to be called in for military service, it becomes clear that the residents do not live unaffected by what is happening around them .

Tempo tipsar! Emilie Löfgren, redaktör för programtidningen.

I want to tell about my favorite films The Artist and the Thief; an exciting film about how a theft becomes the beginning of an unlikely friendship where they are both forced to face demons from the past. Our Time Machine is a great movie about creative anxiety, a father suffering from dementia who's memories  become increasingly blurred and the director's longing for his own family.
