The film will be available for free and online on RADAR.

​​​​​​​In this touching family narrative, a bohemian singer/artist becomes a father to his five-year-old niece when his sister's mental health deteriorates, and finds himself awkwardly balancing between fairy tales and playtime on the one hand, and his rowdy nightlife and provocative art on the other hand.​​​​​​​

Vadym Ilkov graduated from Kyiv National University of Theatre, Film and TV in 2000. He worked as a director of photography on a number of fiction, documentary and animated films. His directorial debut was Waltz Alchevsk (Ukraine, 2014, 54’, doc). My Father Is My Mother's Brother is his first feature doc (Prix du Jury Régionyon, Most innovative feature film of the International Competition, Visions du reel, Nyon, Switzerland, 2018).
