My Brother in Red and Blue
Video, 16mm, 8mm, VFX, color, sound, 16:13, 2014
An experimental documentary about a mystic family story of a sick baby getting healed deep in Ukrainian villages. This film tests the edge between documentary and fiction through the combination of found, archive footage, eccentric visual effects. Starting from a family insight it questions the relation between mystic and pragmatic. And intimate narration of the family story is framed with video recordings of Soviet TV hypnotists of late 1980s.
