fiche film], a Ukrainian-Latvian-German-Qatari co-production, will be sold worldwide by Austrian-based firm Square Eyes, founded by veteran programmer Wouter Jansen.
In detail, the story of This Rain Will Never Stop, penned by Gorlova and Maksym Nakonchnyi, follows a 20-year-old boy called Andriy Suleyman as he tries to secure a sustainable future while navigating the human toll of armed conflict. From the Syrian civil war to strife in Ukraine, Andriy’s existence is framed by the seemingly eternal flow of life and death. The technical crew included sound designer Vasyl Yavtushenko, composers Goran Gora and Serge Synthkey, and DoP Vyacheslav Tsvetkov.
Other films currently repped by the agency are Karolis Kaupinis’s Nova Lituania [+lire aussi :

Speaking about the company’s new acquisition, Jansen said: “We are really proud to be joining the team of this exciting documentary by such a promising director. Gorlova manages to tell a layered story about the consequences of war through beautiful black-and-white cinematography and smart editing, and provides a fresh take on the topic. It’s a film you really want to experience in the cinema.”
This Rain Will Never Stop was produced by Maksym Nakonechnyi for Ukraine’s Tabor, and co-produced by Ilona Bičevska for Latvia’s Avantis Promo and Patrick Hamm for Germany’s Bulldog Agenda. The international promotion of the film was supported by the Ukrainian Institute.
