Goodbye Golovin

Ian Golovin is preparing for a departure that was preceded by another: his father's death. Now he believes he can finally become his true self. His longing for change drives him to leave the grey tower block estate where he lives in the Ukraine. But Masha, who is somehow always close by, asks the question: You think by changing the audience, we can change who we are?

Mathieu Grimard

Born in Montreal, Canada in 1988, the writer and director’s storytelling is informed by youth culture and the human experience.

His early work is characterised by an especially experimental aesthetic, as is amply demonstrated by his short films Fleurs: Between Us Two and Gomme.
