A medical transport driver risks his job when he deviates from his day’s route to shuttle a group of rowdy senior citizens to a funeral in the rambunctious comedy Give Me Liberty, directed and co-written by Kirill Mikhanovsky, a Russian-born filmmaker who emigrated to Milwaukee after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Medical transport driver Vic (Chris Galust) is late, but it’s not his fault. Roads are closed for a protest, and no one else can shuttle his Russian grandfather (Arkady Basin), émigré friends, and a burly Russian boxer (Maxim Stoyanov) to a funeral. The new route uproots his scheduled clients, particularly Tracy (Lauren “Lolo” Spencer in a breakout performance), a vibrant young woman with ALS. As the day goes from hectic to off-the-rails, their collective ride becomes a hilarious, compassionate, and intersectional portrait of American dreams.

A critical favorite that has garnered an impressive 90% rating on Rotten TomatoesGive Me Liberty was lauded upon its rollout at this year’s leading festivals, including the Sundance Film Festival, the Cannes International Film Festival and BAMcinemafest.
