POTENTIAL GRANDPA

One-channel video. 32 min 56 sec. 2012

The mocumentary following the disintegration of Russia.

Russian artists tell stories of their lives indirectly connected with the world of the Chinese protagonist living on the territory which has belonged to these persons. 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. Participating artists: Yuri Leiderman, Sergey Shutov, Lev Evzovitch (part of AES+F group), Kirill Preobrazhenskiy.
