OUR FILMS

directed by MARUSYA SYROECHKOVSKAYA
produced by KSENIA GAPCHENKO, MARIO ADAMSON
co-produced by ANITA NORFOLK, ALEXANDRE CORNU, ARTE RBB
SWEDEN, NORWAY, FRANCE, 94'

Marusya and Kimi are inseparable lovers coming-of-age as Russia's nationalistic dreams take hold. Turning Marusya's camera on themselves, the two capture the euphoric anxiety of their youth, burning the candle at both ends -- but as one light burns brighter, the other may be extinguished forever. A message from a silenced generation
