    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?

    Canada

    Mathieu Grimard is a writer and director born in Montreal, Canada in 1988. His storytelling is informed by youth culture and the human experience. He has directed over 40 music videos and advertising campaigns for companies including Lancôme, Toyota and P&G. His early work is characterised by an especially experimental aesthetic, as is amply demonstrated by his short films GOMME (2015) AND FLEURS: BETWEEN US TWO (2017). GOODBYE GOLOVIN (2020) is his latest work - exploring life, leaving home and the loss of belonging.
