Where is Matryona?

Где Матрёна?
Director: Elena Laskari
RU 201981' ru

Shelemishevo, a small village in the Ryazan Oblast. Two girls live together with their grandmother as they have lost their parents – the mother is dead, the father has a new family. One of the sisters is very sick, the other, Natasha, will turn 18 soon. She revisits her old diary and comments on the journaled stories with ease. 

At first glance, Natasha’s life seems fun and carefree, but is it really? And what lies ahead of her?

Curator's point of view: We will never know if the heroine of the film will succeed in breaking free from the reality that is pressing on her after coming of age. But it does not lessen the drama of the film.
