POTENTIAL GRANDPA

One-channel video. 32 min 56 sec. 2012

The mockumentary following the disintegration of Russia.

Russian artists (from generation active in 90s) tell the stories of their lives indirectly connected with the world of the Chinese protagonist. She lives on the territory to which these persons belonged long before. The characters claim to have a knowledge of the relations between East and West at the period when there was a demarcation line between them, but they can't answer the question of whether defeat could have been turned into victory and what should be considered a victory when we are thinking in terms of country. 

This video was nominated for The Kandinsky Prize in 2012.
