Crocodile Gennadiy (pictured), which was executive produced by Terrence Malick, is about a Ukrainian pastor named Gennadiy Mokhnenko who forcibly kidnaps drug-addicted homeless youth and brings them to a Mariupol rehabilitation center.

The film was produced by Animal Media and Hoover’s long-time creative partner Danny Yourd. Exec producers are Malick and Nicholas Gonda, and Animal Media’s Jim Kreitzburg, Kathy Dziubek and Michael Killen. Atticus Ross, who won an Oscar for The Social Network, composed the score.
