Anton’s parents dropped by the IndieWire Studio last weekend to discuss the documentary, Love, Antosha.

INDIEWIRE – It’s been nearly three years since the tragic passing of Anton Yelchin, but thanks to the actor’s prolific pursuits, a new documentary about his life and career includes more than just footage of his acting.  “All the music in the movie, besides the score is Anton,” “Love, Antosha” director Garret Price told Kate Erbland at the IndieWire Studio presented by Dropbox this past weekend. “He scored his own movie, basically. Which is pretty amazing.”

Yelchin’s parents, Irina and Viktor, also spoke at the studio, explaining that “Love, Antosha” is a movie they think he would have enjoyed. “He would love the way the story’s told, how it goes from one thing to another and it flows,” Irina Yelchin said.

Viktor pointed out that Anton had a sense of humility that probably would have kept him from making a movie like this during his life. “He wouldn’t love that we made this movie,” Viktor said with a slight smile. “But the result, he would be really proud of it.”

Before and after his passing in a vehicle-related accident in June 2016, Yelchin was no stranger to Sundance. “Like Crazy,” which co-starred Yelchin, Felicity Jones, and Jennifer Lawrence, won the Grand Jury Prize in 2011. (The film’s director Drake Doremus is also a producer on “Love, Antosha.”) Cory Finley’s “Thoroughbreds,” which featured one of Yelchin’s final roles, premiered at the festival in 2017.

“Love, Antosha” features interviews not just with Irina and Viktor, but a number of former Yelchin co-stars, sharing their memories and experiences both on and off the set. “Star Trek” franchise co-stars Chris Pine and John Cho join Kristen Stewart and others, who each speak to Yelchin’s personal and professional history.

With Love, Antosha premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, Anton’s parents, Viktor and Irina, spoke with Los Angeles Times about moving forward, making the documentary, and more. Such a heartfelt interview.

Anton Yelchin’s parents live where their son died. After his sudden death nearly three years ago, Viktor and Irina Yelchin couldn’t bear the thought of selling Anton’s home. He’d been obsessed with the place in Studio City, planting himself on his recliner sofa most nights with a bowl of pretzels, his Brussels Griffon, Elvis, and a stack of movies to watch until 3 in the morning.

So even though it was in the driveway that his Jeep malfunctioned in 2016, rolling downhill and pinning him against a gate, this is where his parents felt they had to be.

“It’s difficult, but we feel his presence,” said Viktor, sitting on his son’s favorite leather sofa last week as the rain pattered on the roof. “We’re closer to him, even if it’s very hard.”

“It’s hard to walk there,” Irina said, her voice breaking as she motioned toward the driveway. “It’s hard to live. But we are. So we have to do something while we’re here.”

The couple have already done a number of things in tribute to their son, an actor who amassed close to 70 film and TV credits — ranging from the most recent “Star Trek” reboots to “Hearts in Atlantis” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” — before his death at the age of 27. They erected a statue in his likeness at Hollywood Forever cemetery and donated $1 million to the newly named Anton Yelchin Cystic Fibrosis Clinic at Keck Hospital of USC, where he received treatment for the disease.

But at the Sundance Film Festival this month, they’ll debut their greatest labor of love: “Love, Antosha,” a documentary that celebrates the actor’s legacy.
