Igor & the Cranes’ Journey



Igor and the Cranes’ Journey directed by Evgeny Ruman touches the core of the migration experience.  When Igor’s mother decides for both of them to migrate from Russia to Israel, Igor must learn to face many new challenges, just as the baby crane he observed hatching must soon set out on his first migration. This is the story of an 11 years old boy and a crane, both on a journey that will change them forever.
