Mavka: The Forest Song (2023) | Transcript

Mavka must choose between love and duty to protect the Heart of the Forest.
Mavka: The Forest Song

Mavka – a soul of the Forest – faces an impossible choice between love and her duty as guardian to the Heart of the Forest, when she falls in love with a human – the talented young musician Lukash. Our story is about the magical power of love. That kind of love that enables human nature to find the magic within and reveals abilities and qualities that empower a person to reach beyond possible and to hold against evil and human vice.

[WATER FLOWS]

NARRATOR: From time immemorial, the ancient Ukrainian forest has harboured amazing secrets and mysteries.

Behind the Dark Mountain, in the forest’s heart, the Source of Life is hidden.

It provides the forest and its dwellers with their power, their spark.

But one winter, while the forest was fast asleep, with the guardian alone watching over it, a human broke into the forest through the passage in the Dark Mountain.

It was the owner of the sawmill.

He needed at least one drop from the Source of Life to save his dying newborn daughter.

But then he returned and brought an army with him, hoping to take over the entire Source for himself.

And so a terrible battle began that left no winners.

Only losers.

All humans who had trespassed behind the Dark Mountain vanished.

The Forest Guardian lost all but an echo of his ancient strength.

And when the forest creatures woke in the spring, they were greeted by the horrific consequences of the humans’ treachery.

Look at what our enemies have done.

For this reason, no human shall set foot behind the Dark Mountain ever again!

This is the new forest law.

[BOULDER RUMBLES]

[SOMBRE MUSIC]

Many years have passed since that day.

[GENTLE MUSIC]

[YAWNS] Another winter is over.

Oh, I’ve slept so long.

I was having the loveliest dream.

But this is better than any dream.

Happy spring, Mavka!

Hush! You can fly?!

That’s kind of huge news.

They’ll call me Hush, who conquered the sky!

Just don’t tell Lesh.

He’ll think I’m stork-raving mad. [LAUGHS]

And the fans go wild!

We are so ready to conquer the world.

Settle down, kid. Hometown crowd.

Everybody knows us here.

Wow, I’m just so nervous.

What if things don’t work out in the city?

There are so many other musicians there.

You have to believe in yourself, Nina, and let the music show us the way.

Whatever that’s supposed to mean.

[HORN HONKS]

[VILLAGERS GASP]

VILLAGERS: What was that?

[GRUNTS]

[READS] “Big money for an important job?”

Hm, not for a soon-to-be musical legend like me.

But maybe Uncle Leo can use this.

Lucas, your uncle, he’s not feeling well.

They called the healer and everything.

Get home, quick.

Hopefully we’ll see you at the fair later.

[VEHICLE HISSES AND SPLUTTERS]

Hey, look!

What is it?

[MYSTERIOUS MUSIC]

[DOOR LATCH UNLOCKS]

[VILLAGERS GASP]

[DARK MUSIC]

Greetings,

after so long, my dear fellow villagers.

It is I, Kylina,

the daughter and only heiress of the late sawmill owner.

The one that got burned up by forest demons?

Yes, my father died tragically in a forest wildfire, but it had nothing to do with your quaint superstitions.

After dear Daddy’s death, my mother and I left this place, but soon I became an orphan.

[VILLAGERS SIGH]

Oh, poor thing. What a shame.

How positively tragic!

[VILLAGERS SIGH]

But now I am back to make our village prosperous again.

I’m offering you all a job.

You’ll have so much money that you’ll never have to work again.

Not working is my dream job.

I’ll rebuild the sawmill.

We’ll start selling our timber all around the world.

Aren’t you all good and ready to become rich and happy?

Yeah!

Absolutely.

Yes!

What do you want us to do?

All you have to do is pop over the Dark Mountain…

[VILLAGERS GASP AND MUTTER]

VILLAGER: What?

Oh, she’s cuckoo.

Ugh, just like her father.

But I’m talking huge money.

You can’t buy another life.

Tell the evil spirits I said hi.

[SQUEAKS AND SPEAKS FOREST LANGUAGE]

The guardian is calling us.

LUCAS: Uh, how is he?

[BARKS]

He’s holding on, but my herbs can only do so much.

Leo needs real medicine from the city.

But… it’s not going to be cheap.

Uh…

“Per-du-cabri-co-carum”?

Just give this to the pharmacist in the city.

He’ll understand.

Thank you. Sincerely.

[DOG BARKS]

Great news, Uncle.

A little perdi-caca-something-um and you’ll be good as new.

Lucas, what are you doing?

You can’t waste your money on me.

I’m old and I’ve had a good long run.

Spend it on a nice girl, get settled down…

[SIGHS] ..so your old uncle can die in peace.

[WHIMPERS]

Nobody’s going to D-word.

I’ll find the money some… where.

[CHUCKLES]

Uncle, you’ll be fine. I’ve got you.

I’ve got you!

How… rustic.

KYLINA: Ugh, it’s just a revolting hovel.

A bunch of pathetic cowards!

All my plans are at risk just because this primitive mob is terrified by the forest.

Move it, Frol!

[FROL GROANS]

Oh, ma’am. Right away. Just a second.

Do me a favour and get these peasant rags off me.

How can they wear this hideous stuff?!

Ugh, I hate it. Get rid of it right away.

What a terrible piece of tasteless trash.

Stupid, uneducated, superstitious mob.

[GASPS]

Frol!

Oh, my God.

This is so old-fashioned.

[INSECT WINGS FLUTTER]

It’s bad for my complexion.

What is it?

Uh, about this job offer…

Oh, forget it.

KYLINA: Who’s there?

Frol!

Oh, about THAT job offer?

Please come in.

Hi. My name’s Lucas.

It says you’ll pay well.

KYLINA: Hmm.

Hmm.

I will.

If you’re up to it.

Uh, I am.

I can do any job.

Good.

Eric, Derek, you go with him.

[BOTH GRUNT]

So… what do I have to do?

Find me the tree with this leaf.

Uh… Huh!

In the forest behind the Dark Mountain.

Hmm.

FOREST-DWELLER: What happened?

The guardian is summoning everybody?

This hasn’t happened since I was a sapling.

I’d rather take a nap.

The guardian?!

[UPLIFTING MUSIC]

Greetings upon the new spring, my fellow forest-dwellers.

[ALL EXCLAIM SOFTLY]

Is everyone here?

Mavka, did you wake everybody up?

[FOREST-DWELLERS MUTTER]

She’s probably frolicking through the crocuses with Swampy again.

[FOREST-DWELLERS CHUCKLE]

I’m sorry I’m late, Guardian.

I was helping the lynx cub get out of an old trap.

How terrible!

An old trap.

I thought they were all removed after the battle?

Nymphs.

You are the forest’s armed forces.

Which one of you missed this?

Good job, Mavka.

You’ve embarrassed us in front of the guardian.

[WONDROUS, ETHEREAL MUSIC]

[SIGHS]

Now, then, listen, forest-dwellers.

The Supreme Spirits of Nature whisper that dangerous times approach.

Therefore, at midnight tonight, in the heart of the forest, the spirits shall choose a new guardian.

Lesh, but what about you?

I have so little strength left.

The guardian’s burden has grown too heavy for me.

Lesh won’t be the guardian anymore?

Will the humans attack us again?

Who else can protect us?

HUSH: Hark.

Hush the sky conqueror can become the guardian.

Guardian chatterbox?

Yeah, just what we need.

HUSH: I heard that.

But really, anyone can become the guardian.

You mean like even you?

No, no, no, Mavka.

You may be the sweet, pure soul of the forest, but for this job you are just way too nice.

No, I’m not.

Ooh. I feel unwell.

Ondina, are you alright?

See? So gullible and nice!

LESH: Enough!

All will be decided at midnight in the heart of the forest.

[FOREST-DWELLERS MUTTER]

LUCAS: People say that behind the Dark Mountain, the water nymphs and tree spirits can tickle you to death.

Uh, you’re laughing and laughing and then bleugh!

We don’t believe in monsters of the forest.

Where do we go from here?

I think through this way.

[GASPS]

[WONDROUS MUSIC]

[FIRE FIZZLES OUT]

Uh… [GULPS]

Uh-huh.

I didn’t think we came here to hunt.

This isn’t hunting.

This is fun. [CHUCKLES EVILLY]

Yeah.

[OWL HOOTS]

[GASPS]

[SWAMPY CHITTERS]

Impossible.

[BISON BELLOW]

[LUCAS CHUCKLES NERVOUSLY]

It was an accident. I tripped.

I am extremely clumsy.

My childhood nickname was Clumsy Lucas.

We’ll make you Clumsy Black-and-Blue-cus.

[GULPS AND LAUGHS AWKWARDLY]

DEREK: Mm-hm.

My brother thinks you should go on by yourself.

[LUCAS GROANS]

If you find the tree, mark it on the map.

OK.

I was gonna suggest that anyway.

Wait.

Come on, Swampy.

I’ll deal with the humans myself.

Let’s show them how ‘nice’ I am.

[GROANS FEARFULLY]

[GRUMBLES]

Argh!

Forest demon! [PANTS]

Argh!

Is the human dead?

[GROANS FAINTLY]

[SWAMPY CHITTERS]

Is this some sort of human magic?

HUSH: Mavka!

A lot of weird, whistly, raspy sounds coming from this exact area and I…

[GASPS]

Uh, Hush.

You already learned how to dismount the stork.

Nice.

I am on high alert.

Our forest has just been incursion-ated by…

Argh! THE HUMANS!

I’ll watch him. You go get the nymphs.

Oh, no.

I say we can drive the human out of the forest on our own.

So I would be Hush, the first kicker-outer of humans?

Oh, I like that very much.

Argh!

[GROANS]

[CHITTERS]

Uh… Argh! Evil spirits.

Keep back, I’m warning you.

I… I’m a… borscht belt in combat polka.

[HUSH SPEAKS IN ECHOED TONES] Pathetic little human!

You violated our sacred forest…

Huh?!

..and tried to harm these noble bison.

No! Super no.

That was the bouncer brothers.

In fact, I saved the bison from them!

MAVKA: What is this, then?

Oh. That’s my flute.

I, uh, play my music on it… with it.

‘Music’?

And you were doing this to try and magically enchant me in some way?

No! Well, sure.

Music is kind of magic, but…

Wait, so you liked it, then?

You do not question me, little human!

Why have you trespassed here?

A strange lady offered me a big reward to find a special leaf.

Aha! You hear that? A reward!

I knew that all humans were selfish and greedy!

Why you little…

[SWAMPY YOWLS AND HISSES]

Ouch.

[BELLOWS]

[ALL EXCLAIM]

HUSH: You see this! Human treachery!

Huh?

Wow!

You are the most amazingly beautiful demon I have ever seen.

Your eyes.

I am not a demon.

I am Mavka, the soul of the forest.

Well, I’m Lucas.

The soul of… myself?

Look, I can explain.

I need that reward to buy medicine for my uncle Leo.

No. I have been warned that humans are skilful liars.

You have broken the law of the forest and I expel you!

No expulsion necessary. I’ll leave myself.

Just let me find this silly leaf first or else my uncle… dies.

How awful. I’m so sorry.

[SWAMPY CHITTERS]

Whargh!

[LAUGHS] Hey there, little…

What are you?

This is Swampy, the last of the kittyfrogs.

LUCAS: Awww!

It’s so cute how much he hates me.

[GROWLS]

Oh!

You want something super yummy?

[SNIFFS]

[LUCAS LAUGHS]

Had a feeling you’d like that.

You’re very different from the evil humans in all the forest legends.

Hush, what are you doing?

Swampy, spit it out immediately!

This grotty fleshbag is trying to poison you.

Hey! It’s my mother’s recipe.

HUSH: Oh, Mommy poisons folks too, huh?

[LUCAS AND HUSH GROAN]

MAVKA: Hush, stop!

Lucas, leave him alone.

Huh?

You gave it a name already?

[HUSH WARBLES AND TRUMPETS]

[LUCAS GROANS]

[GRUMBLES]

Lucas. Stop it right now! [VOICE ECHOES]

[THUNDER CRACKS]

Well, he started it. He has to leave.

I need the leaf.

Fine, here’s a leaf. Now leave.

Not this one.

Are all humans this picky?

Lucas. It’s not the leaves you really need.

You need to heal your uncle and I’ll give you the cure he needs.

LUCAS AND HUSH: Really?!

Oh, thank you. You are so nice.

Hey, hey, hey.

Do you really want to break the law to help a human on such a day?

You heard him.

He saved the bison, and for some reason… I believe him.

[INSECT BUZZES]

Urgh!

After all, the soul of the forest must help all the living creatures in the forest, right?

And Lucas is a living creature who is in the forest.

Huh?

Therefore, I have to help him.

And you will help me help him.

Me?

No way! Never!

Never, never, never, never, never, never, never!

No!

[BIRDS WINGS FLAP]

When will I learn that I’m incapable of saying no to you?

Don’t worry, Hush. We’ll make it before the ceremony starts.

I’ll give Lucas the cure for his uncle and…

And then he’ll leave the forest forever.

I promise.

Hmm?

Just tell me and I’ll do it with pleasure.

Maybe you could play your music for me?

Oh. Sure thing.

[DISTANT SCREAMING]

No, no, no, not now.

Nobody can know you’re here.

No, let him play.

The nymphs will hide him safely in the forest, one piece here, one piece there.

We have a lot of nice things.

Like music. It’s so lovely.

You must be the guardian of music in your world.

[LAUGHS] Not yet.

But my dream is to fill my whole life with music.

As soon as my uncle gets better, my musician friends and I are leaving for the big city.

“The big city”.

What is the big city?

It’s a place where everything is made of bricks and stone and there are as many buildings as there are trees in the forest…

HUSH: Hurry up, hurry up. Move!

LUCAS: What are you doing? Back off, shrubby.

Hush! Mavka!

Are you the ones making all this noise?

[GULPS] Too late.

Nice knowing you, Mavka.

Up until today, anyway.

Lesh, how’s it going?

Busier than I’d like.

Who is your guest?

Uh, I’m… Hush’s… cousin. [LAUGHS SHEEPISHLY]

Yes, dropped by for a visit from overseas.

[CHUCKLES] Right, Hush?

[CHUCKLES] Uh-huh.

A very, very many-times-removed cousin.

Shmucas is his name.

Ah! Welcome, friend Shmucas.

[CHUCKLES] Come quickly. The ceremony is about to begin.

Oh, great. What do we do now?

Do you realise how illegal this is?

We just need to keep our distance from the new guardian.

As soon as the ceremony is over, I’ll come up with something.

FROL: You look just like your parents, madam.

Hm, much better now.

Yeah. Lovely portrait.

Totally… horridness.

Hmm?

[BROTHERS MOAN]

Hmm. Did you find the tree?

So what stopped you?

Bunnies? Squirrels? The forest demons?

[HICCUPS AND CHUCKLES]

FROL: Knuckleheads.

Totally useless. Oh!

Stop being such fools.

You are stupid idiots.

What am I paying you for?

And where is the boy?

[GRUNTS]

Oh!

Out of my way.

[EXCLAIMS]

Oh!

Oh, damn!

I’m running out of time.

And where is this peasant loser?

[FOREST-DWELLERS MUTTER]

Ohhh! Oh!

[CHITTERS IN FOREST LANGUAGE]

[BOTH CHUCKLE]

Hey.

[MEOWS]

Shhh!

It is time.

Hmm!

Oh! That’s the…

The Supreme Spirits of Nature, I summon you.

The One Who Dwells in the Earth, I call on you.

The One Who Moves the Waters, I call on you.

The One Who Flies with the Wind…

..the One Who Sits on the Rock…

..I call on you.

Those who protect us, those who help us, those who dwell at the Source of Life, please choose the new guardian.

[INTENSE MUSIC]

[GASPS]

Mm.

Hmm?

SPIRIT: The guardian is chosen.

[GASPS] Huh?

Her?

Me?

What’s happening? Is it good or bad?

Please close the knothole on the front of your face.

Lesh, why me?

I can’t possibly be the guardian.

I have to tell you something.

The Supreme Spirits are wise, and they know who is capable of protecting our realm.

Now the Supreme Spirits

will bestow their powers on the chosen one.

[WONDROUS MUSIC]

[WIND WHISTLES]

[WONDROUS MUSIC CONTINUES]

[FOREST-DWELLERS GROAN AND EXCLAIM]

[GENTLE MUSIC]

Incredible.

Perfect.

So how do we “keep our distance from the new guardian” now?

Mavka, you are now granted the powers of the Supreme Spirits of Nature.

It is for you now to always remember that our enemy – the humans – are out there.

Defend this fragile, sacred place with your very life.

Please welcome our new guardian of the Source of Life and the forest.

[WONDROUS MUSIC CONTINUES]

That was just… whoa!

Our little Mavka is now the guardian.

I always knew this would happen.

[SCOFFS]

There has got to be some mistake.

Why did the spirits not choose the strongest one?

With her as guardian, our forest is more in danger than ever.

Hey. Easy there, friend.

Who are you supposed to be?

Me? I am, uh, Hush’s cousin.

You… [SNIFFS]

You stink like a human.

Yeah, he stepped in some human on the way here.

Uh, Cousin Shmucas.

If he’s a noise keeper, I’m the new guardian of the forest.

And we all know… I’m not.

[FOREST-DWELLERS GASP]

[GASPS]

Uh… oops.

Human?!

Run. Move your footsticks.

You treacherous human. You have tricked me!

Human?

Oh, no, he’s a human.

Don’t let him get away!

Am I the only one here who’s completely confused?

LESH: Hush!

You’ve got a great deal of explaining to do.

The lynx will take you home.

Whoa! Sounds safe.

[CHUCKLES] Nice… kitty.

Take this.

It will heal your uncle.

Thank you.

Huh?

[FOREST-DWELLERS APPROACH]

There’s no time. Go… and never return.

Death is the only thing for a human to seek here.

Go!

Wait!

I promised I’d play for you.

Where is he? Where’s the human?

He got away.

What? How did he…

You helped him?

You have the powers of the guardian at your disposal, you could have – no, you should have stopped him.

The guardian doesn’t need your help deciding how and when to use her powers, Ondina.

Mavka, this human is no different than all the others.

He will betray you.

And when he does, we will all pay the price.

Hmm.

Frol!

Yes, madam?

There’s something about this boy Lucas I don’t trust.

Watch him.

I’m not so sure he came back from the forest empty-handed.

Me?!

Madam, I am a fashion tsar in the making, not a spy.

Oh, that’s too bad.

If I get what I want, I could establish you as the number one fashion god… in the world.

With my own Soul of Frol Manly Lace Boutique?

With a global chain of whatever insane thing you just said.

Then, if you need a spy, why, Frol is your guy.

[CHICKENS CLUCK]

Ugh. Uh!

Silks, ribbons and laces don’t have to be disgraces.

That’s the Soul of Frol.

[CHICKENS CLUCK]

No. This really happened to me. Last night.

The forest is full of not demons but creatures.

And they are not fond of us at all.

Except Mavka. She is very nice.

Danger or no, I have to go back to the forest to Mavka, to thank her.

Lucas, look, if you’ve been at the village fair all night long and plan on going back, you can just tell me.

Busted. You know me.

Party animal.

Best carnival ever.

How can he play his beautiful music without his flute?

We have to return this to Lucas.

What if something happens in the forest while I’m gone?

What if nothing happens while I’m here?

You’re absolutely right.

I’m the guardian now. I can’t leave the forest.

Humans are enemies.

I somehow managed to live without Lucas before.

Or his music.

Or his eyes.

Or his smile.

Or this feeling that now lives right here.

Lucas was at the Source of Life.

The heart of the forest.

And I also found this.

Finally it will be mine!

[GASPS]

But… but there is nothing marked here!

Now think! Did Lucas say anything about the tree?

[STAMMERS] No!

Nothing about the tree, but he just said he will go into the forest again to see the nice forest.

The magma! Boy, what a fool.

It doesn’t make sense.

The nice forest magma?

Yeah, that’s what he said.

He probably wants to keep the source to himself.

Frol.

Yes, Madam?

Keep an eye on this boy.

[CLICKS FINGERS]

When he decides to go to the forest, we need to keep him company by all means.

Those humans obviously conspired to lure you into a trap.

I love how no matter where you look, you see goodness, Mavka, but you have made the same mistake I made once in trusting a human.

Lucas would never do that.

I’m sure he can explain everything.

[PIPES CREAK]

So much water has flowed past since that fateful day, the time has come for me to tell the full truth.

The battle all those winters ago – I’ve never told anyone the reason why it happened.

[WIND HOWLS]

The sawmill owner came to me in tears.

He was begging me to save his newborn daughter… and I believed in goodness in him.

I gave this human a drop from the Source of Life itself.

Soon, he returned with… well, with an army of humans.

They wanted the Source of Life for themselves.

So, I called for the Supreme Spirit of the Underworld, the One Who Sits in the Rock, to give me the Spark of Rage.

And, may all those I love forgive me, he did.

Everything good in me was replaced by sheer rage.

I burned and the world burned.

Humans and the forest alike.

Fire and hatred without end.

Have you seen Lucas?

Have you seen my boy, Lucas?

[CONDESCENDINGLY] Oh!

Your boy’s been taken by the evil forest demons.

Huh?

Stings, right?

But you can still save him if you join us.

Take the weapon, old man. I’m on a schedule here!

You stay here and make sure nobody finds the boy… unless you were just dying to be in the battle?

[CHUCKLES CONDESCENDINGLY]

This is for our home!

[GASPS]

Hm.

I might’ve frightened the people at the fair, but the forest means no harm to humans.

We can live in peace and even help each other.

“Help each other”?

A long time ago, the forest gave a drop from the Source of Life to the owner of the sawmill so he could heal his sick newborn daughter.

The forest saved you!

What? Nobody ever told me!

It is the truth.

[LAUGHS]

The truth?

The truth is the sawmill owner never had a daughter, but he had a beautiful wife that came up with a tragic story about a little sick daughter.

My husband was obedient but weak.

He only got me the one lousy drop that kept me young and fit for all these years.

But how does this make us enemies?

Oh, you’ll never understand this. Look at you!

You’re Nature’s queen, glowing and gorgeous forever!

You don’t know nothing about crow’s-feet, turkey neck, back fat.

You’ll never get old and saggy and shrivelled.

But I can give you one more drop.

That is so nice of you, but, see, if I get hold of the entire Source of Life, I will not only be young and beautiful forever, but it’ll also make me the richest, most powerful woman ever.

But without the Source of Life, the forest will die.

It’s gonna die one way or the other, honey, so why not just get out of my way?

Hm.

[TENDRILS RUMBLE]

I paid Lucas very well so he would find the source and lure you into the village.

Huh?

He took his money and left.

To the city?

Exactly.

Oh.
