"Soyka" is a story started in January 2019.
In January 2020 film raised $5,505.28 from 166 backers (U.S., Belarus, Russia, Ukraine, Germany, United Kingdom, Portugal, France, Netherlands, Denmark, Greece and New Zealand):
In total production budget made $17,000 with help of individual backers, events and grants. Additional $5,000 were spent for pre-production: script writing, grant writing, producers work and promotion.

Right now our goal is finish post-production: editing, coloring, digital cinema package, festivals and distribution.
For this I still need $5,000.
"Soyka" was a green set:
we recycled and used reusable bottles.
"Soyka" is a short indie film based on a real story. It shows a day of a young woman from Belarus from morning until late afternoon. The viewer follows her on the way to work, home and dream of having a better life. It is a story about one person, but at the same time about millions of people having a similar experience – difficulties immigrants face, self-realization issues, loneliness, happiness, and hope.
Why this project is important to ME
I’m the best person to tell this story because I’ve wrote it. I’ve had a similar experience, so I can feel the protagonist and understand what she has and another girls/women like she been going through.
