Antytila: The Score of War

Feature documentary film - in production

When Russia invades their country, members of the chart-topping Ukrainian pop-rock group Antytila stand their ground as soldiers while their families flee to safety. Antytila: The Score of War embeds with the band and its charming and ambitious frontman, Taras Topolia, as they continue to fight for their people both on the battlefield and onstage, constantly torn between two identities: rockstar and soldier. Can they defend their homeland — while also chasing their dreams? Which is more powerful — a gun or a song?
