DUROTSHKA

DIR: Reetta Aalto
2004 / Finland / 10 min

Film unavailable :-(

Sorry, this film is no longer available.

In the mid 90's I lived in a squat in St. Petersburg, Russia. There I made friends with Marina, a Russian girl of my age with a difficult life. Later on Marina died in strange circumstances. In this film I make a journey to her grave and into my memories of her. Durochka is a film about being close, yet worlds away, a requiem for a dear, yet unknown friend.
