Man Who Put Idea In (18+)

Russia, 1993, colour, 30 min.
Director: Pavel Petchenkin
The film is about the life and philosophy of the hero of the film Kamenskikh Igor Kuzmich, who lives in the village of Pavlovsk, Perm region, founded by the Stroganovs. In the appearance of Kuzmich, the image of Diogenes is recognized. A ramshackle leaning hut with broken windows, a never-heated stove, an old cousin on the next bed. And here, in the house, there is a goat and two horses, which in fact are both a symbol of Kuzmich's life and his stove. The transmigration of souls and the new coming of Christ to Earth, unity with Nature and God - this is his Faith. "When all borders between countries and people are erased," he says at the end of the film, "then the kingdom of God will come."
