“The Russian Woodpecker”


“The Russian Woodpecker”

many thx to Lamme and AndyWiz :)

The film The Russian Woodpecker, a new documentary film about a secret Soviet antenna and a Ukrainian man [Fedor Alexandrovitch] who must decide whether to risk his life by revealing the secrets he uncovers, has won the World Cinema Documentary Grand Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival!

The movie storyline reads that: while researching a secret Soviet antenna at Chernobyl, which interrupted global radio communications from 1976 – 1989, Fedor Alexandrovich uncovers a dark conspiracy. The scientists and military men dismiss his warnings that Russia is behind a massive cover-up and he descends into a nightmare where he battles the antenna on his own terms. When he is invited to address the crowds in Kyiv’s [Maidan] Revolution Square during the height of the protests, he fears that powerful men may kill him if he speaks out.
