"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, the production budget earned $17,000 with the help of individual backers, events and grants. An additional $5,000 was spent for pre-production. The focus of the pre-production phase included script writing, grant writing, promotions and the work performed by producers.

Film is a fiscally sponsored project of the New-York Foundation for the Arts!

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.

Short Summary


"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.
