THE FALL OF LENIN, dir. Svitlana Shymko
Ukraine / documentary / 11 min.
Ironic documentary film about the farewell to the phantoms of the USSR in Ukraine. The spiritual session with the ghost of Lenin guides us through our past, present and future. The film presents the dawn and the twilight of idols, and the curious afterlife of history’s ghosts. “The Fall of Lenin” is inspired by laws adopted in 2015 by the Parliament of Ukraine, which condemn the Communist totalitarian regime and ban the use of the communist symbols.
ENCARNACION, dir. Chloé Bourgés
France, Venezuela / feature / 24 min.
