Twenty-five-year-old Vadym works as a sound recordist. When a generous job offer comes along which could help him fulfil his dream to move to Canada, he doesn’t think twice and sets out to record the sounds of animals in the Carpathians… In his visually inspired road movie, subtly enhanced by its synthesized score, debuting director Antonio Lukich demonstrates a highly unusual talent for constructing tragicomic situations.

Antonio Lukich was born in Uzhgorod, Western Ukraine and studied directing at Kyiv National Karpenko-Kary University. His graduation short film It Was Showering in Manchester was awarded Best Short Film at Odesa IFF 2016. My Thoughts Are Silent is his debut feature.
