May 9th

“My birthday is the brightest day of my life. My birthday always starts at the cemetery”. This is the autobiographical film about the perceiving intertwining meanings of life and death that I started to experience from the very beginning of my life – from a day of my birthday. The day that I always started at the grave of my grandpa who worked for KGB. I was lucky (or not) to be born on May 9th – Ukrainian national commemoration day of the WWII. Oblivion and memory, obeying the tradition and wish to celebrate the life – all things had mixed on that graveyard. But once I received a chance to escape from there. (cinedoc)
