HOW TO RE-ESTABLISH A VODKA EMPIRE
Dir. Dan Edelstyn and Hilary Powell (75 min, UK, 2012)
Director Dan Edelstyn expected
When British filmmaker Daniel Edelstyn travels to the Ukraine in search of his roots, he discovers that the vodka distillery opened by his great grandfather in 1904 is still in operation. Impetuously, he decides to become an entrepreneur and import the vodka to the UK - despite his utter lack of business experience. Artist Hilary Powell helps Edelstyn invoke the spirits of his ancestors with inventive animated sequences.
