Ten Centimeters of Life (16+)

Russia, 2014, colour, 65 min.
Director: Anna Yanovskaya
Ten centimeters of life is a space between water and ceiling. People spent eight hours on tables and wardrobes in ice-cold water, with their heads up, trying to breath. This film is an attempt to understand how person reacts to extreme situations, and at the same time to find out what really happened in the little town of Krymsk at the night of the flood. Perhaps, it was sense of humour and incredible will to live, that made people almost insubmergible.
Debut film.
