2024 / 67' / Ukraine

The film is based on video footage shot directly on the battlefield. “Sopilka” is the code name for a radio communication gun. Figuratively, the cannon resembles a flute, and such an instrument would be suitable for the god of thunder, Perun. The characters in the movie are artillery soldiers.

Different people in peaceful life – in war, they are in the same limited space, a few hundred meters away, and serve as if they were ancient priests of a pagan tribe in a sacred place, and their altar is a cannon.
