PILOT: A BATTLE FOR SURVIVAL
Russia prepares at least one WW2 film a year, and this year it will be THE PILOT: A BATTLE FOR SURVIVAL (Лётчик) directed by
Renat Devletyarov. The film, which has a USA distributor already, will hit Russian cinemas in November. The film centers on an IL-2 pilot, played by Pyotr Fyodorov (from Duelist, Stalingrad, Sputnik, Blackout), who, back in December of 1941, crash lands in a remote forest clearing after an air assault, and must find his way back to friendly territory while battling hunger and extreme cold and evading packs of wolves and Nazi soldiers. It is a gripping story of survival, bravery and sacrifice in the face of chilling circumstances, made even more riveting due to its depiction of actual historical events. Check out the early trailer below:
