Popular actor and three-time Oscar nominee Viggo Mortensen arrived in Chernivtsi on the opening day of the Mykolaychuk OPEN film festival. His film “The Dead Don't Hurt” will be shown at the opening ceremony.

The main event of the first day of the festival was the screening of the film by Mortensen, who acted as director, screenwriter and performer of one of the main roles. This is reported by Suspilne Chernivtsi.

The actor himself expressed his desire to join the film festival, as he is currently on a tour of Europe, where he is presenting the film, the program director of the film festival Aleks Malyshenko told Suspilne.

In the world, the audience managed to watch the film only at a few film festivals, in particular in Toronto last year. Also, the film was released in wide cinema distribution in several countries of the world last month. The plot of the film unfolds in the 1860s in the USA, during the Civil War, and it is a western with a love story against the background of war.

The film “Dead Men Don't Hurt” raises the topic of women's contribution to war and how much is placed on them. A lot depends on them, including the economy. While working on the film, I was interested in following the fate of a strong, ordinary woman whose husband went to war. No king or ruler will come and protect her. She can rely only on her own strength, – said Viggo Mortensen.
