Cultivate Cinema Circle, in collaboration with Burning Books and Squeaky Wheel presents the Buffalo premiere of Steve Hoover’s Almost Holy (formerly titled Crocodile Gennadiy)!
“In Almost Holy [formerly Crocodile Gennadiy], what begins as an astounding, morally murky portrait of a man subverting inert government organizations to rescue abused children morphs into a something more akin to a unraveling sketch of a man clutching his overflowing family, bracing for the waves of political unrest that are guaranteed to turn his life upside down.” Jordan M. Smith, IONCINEMA.com
Almost Holy (Steve Hoover)
100 min, digital, USA, 2016
Gennadiy Mokhnenko has made a name for himself by forcibly abducting homeless drugaddicted kids from the streets of Mariupol, Ukraine. As his country leans towards a European Union inclusion, hopes of continued post-Soviet revitalization seem possible. In the meantime, Gennadiy’s center has evolved into a more nebulous institution.
