Bring Back My Hands (18+)

Russia, 2020, colour, 53 min.
Director: Konstantin Selin
Siberian microsurgeon Vadim Keosyan has been returning lost hands and fingers to patients for twenty years. Such operations often take place at night, which is very exhausting for doctors. To warn people against an accident, Vadim starts a video blog. He films his operations, records interviews with patients, and reminds of safety precautions. One day a difficult patient who has lost his hand gets to the hospital. He doesn’t know how he will live further and is not sure that this time the doctor will be able to save his hand.

AWARDS
