Is it a dream or reality, the past or the present, the sacred or the profane?
The short experimental documentary is depicting intimate perspective, a surreal reflection of death and life through the rarely captured moment of the funeral of a deceased relative in the flare of poetic lenses. The film is a farewell to the vanishing world of the traditional Ruthenian community in the hills of eastern Slovakia. Metaphorically, a farewell to the personal worlds which are fading with the death of each of our ancestors. Visually highly subjective, dream-like black and white imagery brings the audience into the world of memory and inter-looping past and present.
