HOW IS KATIA? Tells the story of a single mother, working hard as a paramedic to provide a better life and a home for her young daughter. A sudden turn of events makes Anna question her moral compass in a society where everyone has lost their own.

“I have always been deeply moved by stories with strong moral questions at their core - stories that push their characters to make complicated compromising choices. These stories help me better understand myself,” notes director Tynkevych.

The script was co-written by Christina Tynkevych and Serhiy Kastornykh. The main role is played by emerging actress Anastasia Karpenko. Anastasia has starred in numerous films, TV Series and short films in Ukraine.

HOW IS KATIA? is produced by Olha Matat and Vlad Dudko through Ukrainian production company Evos Film, supported by the Ukrainian State Film Agency for the production of the film. In 2021, How is Katia? won the proMOTION programme by the Ukrainian Institute, that aims to support the international promotion of Ukrainian films.

Christina Tynkevych graduated from the University of Arts and the University of Westminster (London, UK). Her first short documentary ‘Kraina’ was long-listed for the Oscars in 2017, it was followed by ‘Solatium’ (feature short) and ‘Generation 91’ (feature documentary), which went on to screen at festivals both in Europe and America.

HOW IS KATIA? participated in a number of markets and workshops including Midpoint Feature Launch, Thessaloniki Agora Co-Pro and WiP, EAVE, New Horizons Studio+ etc.

HOW IS KATIA? will premiere in 2022.

One week left to apply to Kids Kino Lab scholarship programme for writers / script consultants and a young producer.

To give you some insight on what it is like to work with our tutors as their assistants, we asked Marie-Gabrielle Peaucelle and Emma Drost Jensen, our tutors assistants during Kids Kino Lab 2021 edition:

"Being an assistant to Philip LaZebnik at Kids Kino Lab was an incredible experience. I got to work on very different projects and learned many tools from Philip to analyze and give feedback on a treatment and a script. Besides, the various masterclasses that were given throughout the year either by other mentors or external guests were very rich. Finally, meeting all the participants from different countries, sharing ideas and experiences, was very thrilling. I really recommend to apply as an assistant, you will learn a lot, meet a lot of professional experts, caring to share their work and experience". - Marie-Gabrielle Peaucelle
