Awaken! (0+)

Russia, 2012, colour, 52 min.
Director: Valery Timoshenko
This is a film about an ordinary Russian village where around the church, near the priest, gathered very different village people. Almost all of them were alcoholics in the past. Here is their salvation; so many people do not drink for five or six years. Someone breaks down from time to time, but with the efforts of a priest and all the rest he or she is saved. There is one important part of the salvation in this story - the children who live in the community and who need protection and care. And the adults, who have become boring, dull, and gave up drinking, are in desperate need of it. Children are overflowed with the interest to life, joy and confidence, and it is not so clear who saves whom more. The Old Russian word-call "Trezvites!" («Get sober») means you have to see the world clearly and soberly, to see the reality, to be ready to the ordeal. If these people - adults and children - will survive, save themselves and regain the joy of life, there is a chance that the same thing will happen to the country.
