Fragile Memory

Крихка Пам'ять

A famous Soviet cinematographer Leonid Burlaka, who worked at Odesa Film Studio, suddenly gets diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
At the same time Ihor, his grandson, and emerging Ukrainian cinematographer, accidentally finds a heavily damaged grandpa’s photo archive from the Soviet 1960s. A young Ukrainian cinematographer Ihor meets a young Soviet cinematographer Leonid who starts establishing his career during the 'Khrushchev Thaw’.
This makes Ihor see that actually he knows almost nothing about the grandpa and his youth.
Ihor dives into all controversiality of times of Leonid's youth: figuring out how notorious Soviet cinema machine was and how limited was the proposed concept of ‘freedom’.
Yet the time is running out: soon Leonid’s will not remember Igor at all.
