Q&A with Eva Bass
Saveliy – misfit, intellectual, and nihilist from the Hood – is the owner of the computer club ‘Kettle’. He is twenty-five and he is tired. Tired of drinking, doping, and going with the stream. Saveliy’s existential crisis is exacerbated after his old friend Roman commits suicide, leaving an ironic note: “Fuck you all!”. Why did Roman die and what should Saveliy do with his own life? The answers found in the Hood don’t bring any relief, but only tear Saveliy apart. Maybe he should just flip everyone off like Roman did? The last hope for Sava is a mysterious meeting in the City. In his heart, he believes that it сan put an end to his rotting in the Hood and help him to break through the boundaries of the old world. Do you want to know if Saveliy plays by the rules of someone else's game or he finds his own way?
