Sniper: The White Raven


After suffering a senseless tragedy at the hand of invading soldiers in the Donbas region in 2014, a former Ukrainian physics teacher renounces his peaceful way of life and seeks revenge. Upon joining the military and earning a coveted spot as a sniper, he sets his sights on an elite Russian sniper whose elimination could change the tide of the conflict.

Sniper is built on vengeance, a lone shooter mowing down Russians and their partisan supporters during the 2014 Russian invasion; along with an accompanied present-day 2022 epilogue. It’s based on the experiences of a real-life conscript & unlike most any sniper movie you can think of, this time, we see how such super-shooters are selected and trained.

Aldoshyn Pavlo stars as Mykola, a pacifist when we meet him, married to an artist (Maryna Koshkina) who is expecting their first child, living lightly on the land in a dugout house they built, using electricity from a windmill they installed. They’re cute and odd enough to make local TV in their corner of Donetsk. We then follow Mykola's journey into the throes of war as the Russians encroach in what is a thrilling perspective on the advent or war in Europe in the 21st Century.
