According to the plot of the picture, somewhere in the laboratory of Eastern Europe, an accident occurs, as a result of which a person receives superpowers that are unnecessary to him. He does not want to be a superhero and save the world, but only wants to return to his old life. However, even a new superpower does not save the hero from problems in his everyday life.

"In this film, topics such as our interaction with oddities or escape from claustrophobia into open space are important to me," says the director of the project, Kirill Khachaturov.


Russian Short Films Will Be Shown at Immersive Film Festival

To date, the animated film Naked has received over 35 nominations at various screenings and 9 awards. The film won awards at such festivals as ANNECY, ZAGREB, OTTAWA and is the most popular Russian short film in 2020, as well as the first animated film to receive an award for best directing at the prestigious Russian film festival "Pacific Meridian".

The film is distributed by VOSTOK (www.vostok.global), the first distribution agency for Russian short films, created in February 2019 by producers Yanna Buryak and Nikolai Yaroshenko with the support of BKF Bank.

"We are the first Russian distribution agency to directly sell the Russian film ARTE France ," notes Yanna Buryak . - We are really proud of this and, as it seems to us, deservedly so. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with ARTE. In 2022, VOSTOK and ARTE will release a joint program of Russian short films."
