The Stoker

Film Synopsis

St. Petersburg in the middle of the 1990’s. In an old boiler room on the outskirts of the city lives a taciturn Yakut, a retired major and veteran of the war in Afghanistan. Now he works as a stoker who clumsily pecks out his story on an old typewriter in his spare time. And although he is a hermit, the stoker is frequently called on by all sorts of visitors.


The Asia Pacific Screen Academy expresses its respect for and acknowledgement of the South East Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of country, including the custodial communities on whose land works are created and celebrated by the Asia Pacific Screen Awards. We acknowledge the continuing connection to land, waters and communities. We also pay our respects to Elders, past and emerging. We recognise the integral role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and First Nations peoples continue to play in storytelling and celebration spaces.
