"Leonids Story"

Direction Rainer Ludwigs
Germany-Ukraine, 2011

A Soviet family searching for a modest paradise is swept into an immense disaster. This magically animated film combines drawing, photography and documentary video to capture the surreal emotions of the too-real tragedy: Chernobyl 1986. Leonid grew up in the village next to the reactor. The catastrophe broke his life, ruined his health, and threatened his unborn child. Yet his work takes him right into the contaminated zone.

Direction Andrey Kim
Russia, 2010

The script of the fiction fairytale film has been written on the basis of the results of the work psychologists with the group of young people at the age from 18 till 25 years. The young men gathered, communicated, composed different situations and told each other fairy tales. Gradually, step by step psychologists opened the subconscious of the participants and questions appeared as the result, all the same variations of eternal themes: love, friendship, treachery, fidelity... The director has shooted in leading roles not the professional actors, but young men, those, who has composed these "imaginations". Their sincerity in the process of feeling (living) themselves in fantastic coincidence is enough award for risk of the given unusual experiment. Authors of the project believe that they managed to find the new kind in cinema. Technological processes of cinema serve for realization of children's imaginations, problems and ideas. It is opposite to search by actors filmmakers under scenario. It is disputable idea - to have for leading roles not actors, and the casually found people. But it is attractive. Really actuality of problems and the characters, here those advantages which are given by this method.
