Bullshit.jpg

Bullshit

Film Directed by: Borys Shusterman, Mykhailo Ozerov (Genre: Short)

"Conventional wisdom - with a touch of joking undertone - suggests that the shortest fling can become the most significant one for a man; this is when it is unambiguously supported by a paternity test result. Of course, such a "literary work" is usually based on, albeit accidental, but ... Treason. So what should the heroes, husband and wife, mother and father with three children, do? Should they raise the concern, should they reveal the whole truth? But it can hurt deeply the one you love, even cause a breakup. So should they cover up the truth? Should they cover up it forever and would bear this burden for the rest of their lives? But it is not that easy to handle the pressure. Still, there is a way out, and the heroes of the film have found a solution - it turns out that they can do neither. It is enough just to love each other. Indeed, it seems that having such explosive characters our heroes won’t definitely be able to manage it without the help of this tool."

The Messenger * Hermes Remembers

Film Directed by: Borys Shusterman, Mykhailo Ozerov (Genre: Mythology, Fantasy, Experimental, Short)

"Hermes, the most human-like of all the Olympian gods, is now old. On this day he remembers himself as a younger transgendered man, irrepressible but needy of his father Zeus and his aunt Aphrodite. He roams the world, on a quest for love and self-validation. He misbehaves it's true, but this is not a cautionary tale, he is after all a god and can do as he pleases. Remembering Hermes is also a 4th dimensional being so he views time via eternal recurrence. You see, TIME is circular and in layers for a 4th dimensional being. Memories are also seen both clear or hazy depending on their importance. In the beginning it was young Hermes quest to find a way to fully love himself inside the inter-related domains of earth, sky, fire and water, in order to be successful and be a fully realized Messenger of the Gods. Filmed in many wondrous locations around the globe since 1998, this story commingles the divine with the mundane across the vast spectrum of the imagination utilizing the five elements water, air, earth and fire & music; to arrive at it's quintessence. Note: My partner for the last 38 years, Producer Byron Ayanoglu who plays Zeus, and Paul William Roberts who plays Hermes Sr. have recently passed away during this past summer. May Lord Byron Ayanoglu and Paul William Roberts RIP! I am so devastated about having lost my partner Lord Byron and my best friend Paul William Robert who was an Oxford Scholar. "
