A journey towards the work of art and a journey inside it is always of a two-pole nature, the meaning of a journey is composed of oppositions, it is the incomplete that matters most, something still developing. A journey in a land between two continents becomes a search of an inner,remote equilibrium, which is attack – proof -again the longing to discover something “different” . Rudolf Alexandreyevich talks about life torn between a fatal devide between the German and the Russian languages. A misunderstanding from war branded him as well. At the close of the World War II he was deported to Siberia as a Ukrainian soldier. Like many other expatriated people he found himself a local girl, got married and stayed. He has been working in kolkhoz for years, and now is sitting on a bed, the camera looking at the person branded by murders which made him understand how little it takes to make nobody out of somebody who used to be so close, we are looking at one of those heroes oh the life in the uninhabited north.
