About the Film:
Acid is a Russian drama that is a silent manifesto of the generation of twenty-year-olds in search for life's meaning. Directed by Alexander Gorchilin and starring Filipp Avdeev, Alexander Kuznetsov, and Arina Shevtsova, the main characters have been abandoned in a world adorned with concepts such as family, friendship, love, and opportunities. They justify their reckless and infantile behavior by the lack of communication with their parents, since they grew up without fathers. Now, time has come for them to face adulthood. Acid received the "Kinotavr. Debut" prize at the 29th Kinotavr, the main Russian national film festival, and was screened at the Panorama section at the 69th Berlinale.
About the Director:
Alexander Gorchilin is a Russian film and stage actor, voice actor and director born in Moscow, Russia. He began his acting career as a child in the Nord-Ost musical, then later on stage of the Young Actors Musical Theatre, followed by commercials, TV-series and feature films. In 2008 he entered the Moscow Art Theatre School, which later transformed into the Studio Seven theatre company. He graduated in 2012 and together with the Studio Seven joined Moscow's Gogol Center Theatre, where he continued his work in films, most notably as Antonin in Yes&Yes by Valeriya Gay Germanika (FIPRESCI Prize at the 36th Moscow International Film Festival), Grigoriy Zaytsev in The Student by Kirill Serebrennikov (François Chalais Prize at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival) and Punk in Leto by Serebrennikov (nominated for Palme d'Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival).
