An intimate, career-spanning portrait of Ukrainian immigrant and punk legend Eugene HützScream of My Blood chronicles Hütz’s childhood journey to the U.S., his rise to fame with punk band Gogol Bordello and his defiant return to Ukraine after the Russian invasion.

Through never-before-seen photo and video archives spanning two decades – including concert performances, backstage moments and intimate interviews – Scream of My Blood follows the epic journey of Eugene Hütz, Gogol Bordello frontman and one of the greatest storytellers of our time, as he uses music as a rallying cry for the cultural identity of Ukraine while it continues its fight for sovereignty. Born in Ukraine to a family with Romani roots, Hütz fled his homeland during the Chernobyl disaster. Now, after years of exorcizing demons through his music, he is going home to face down the biggest demon of all. A wild punk-rock-doc that explodes off the screen, Scream of My Blood is a testament to the power of speaking your truth, no matter the cost.

“Only the true friendship of two dedicated craftsmen and maniacs can give an insight like this documentary. Often on his own dime, Nate Pommer traveled the world with us, documenting Gogol Bordello’s impact for over the course of two decades, while tectonic changes were taking place, with empires and minds crumbling around us. When the war in Ukraine broke out once again, he fearlessly followed us, bringing along the VICE News team on our mission to support troops and refugee hubs.

A trip that once again distilled our true callings. Much respect to Eric Weinrib and the VICE team for keeping the story of Ukrainian tragedy and its heroic resilience in the news, and helping to get the story out at the hardest time for the nation.” – Eugene Hütz
