Director of ‘Rhino’, Oleh Sentsov at IFFI52
He further added, “It is my effort to show the current generation how life was in Ukraine in the nineties. It will remove any misconceptions that they may have about life in Ukraine at that time.”
Veronica Welch added, “It is an effort to educate youth that life on social media is not real and we have to work hard to have a decent living. Crime is not the way to get there, and they may end up paying a heavy price for indulging in criminal activities.”
It is the story of a petty thief, a young man nicknamed Rhino who quickly works his way up the criminal hierarchy in the 1990s, Ukraine. Rhino has only known power and cruelty, but with nothing to lose, could he finally find redemption?
