THE GULLS is the first film to come out of the Russian region of Kalmykia in twenty years. First-time feature director Ella Manzheeva created a parable about the energy of life, set against the background of modern Kalmykia, whose Buddhist residents descent from Mongol tribes. A young fisherman’s wife (played by Russian top model Evgenia Manzhieva) deals with the sudden death of her husband in small town on the shore of the Caspian Sea.
Lead actress Evgeniya Mandzhieva (1985) is a Russian fashion model of ethnic Kalmyk descent. She has appeared on the cover of Russian Vogue and Vogue China and is a regular on the runway for Jean-Paul Gaultier, Marc Jacobs, Hugo Boss, Vera Wang, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and others.
