Shadows of Your Childhood (0+)

Russia, 2020, colour, 21 min.
Director: Mikhail Gorobchuk
The house plunges into the silence of the night, overgrows with long shadows, plays with occasional flashes of the warm flame of a kerosene lamp. For little Stesha darkness turns out to be a pretext for the discovery of another world, sometimes scary, sometimes fascinating. Fragments of unsteady memories, voices, flashes of light - the trembling sensations of early childhood that stay with us forever.
