Uncle Sasha, or One Flew over Russia (18+)

Russia, 2018, colour, 58 min.
Director: Tatiana Soboleva
Having fled from Moscow 30 years ago to the historical centre of Russia he himself calculated, Uncle Sasha decided to realize a true utopia on the territory of one given village. As every member of the Russian intelligentsia, he believes in true wisdom of the Russian traditional way, which was forgotten and crushed by revolution and modernization. Once having started the journey “searching for roots”, he is still on his way as this journey goes through impassable swamps. Every spring he builds a bridge, and every winter it is broken by ice. This year it will be Uncle Sasha’s 30th bridge.
