The Face of Ukraine - Casting Oksana Baiul
Available on DocPlay, Prime Video
Six girls at an audition, all dressed in the same dresses. They reveal what their biggest dream is, where they come from, and when they last cried. These girls have come here from all corners of the country; some have attended acting or modelling courses. They are all auditioning for the role of a former idol: Oksana Baiul. In 1994, when she was sixteen, this figure skater won Ukraine’s first Olympic gold medal. She was the face of a young nation that had recently gained independence; her tears of joy were unforgettable. Sundance Film Festival 2015 Winner: Non-Fiction (Short Film Jury Prize)
