I Do Not Hate You, Death

The film is about huge and unique Eastern traditional Fest - Memorial Easter. It is a metaphorical and poetic approach to life and death, where death is a new beginning and inevitable part of life. It is the only day during the year when the cemetery is full of life. People meet each other at the cemetery to commemorate their relatives, they share food and drinks in the name of departed, offer gifts to each other.
Memorial Easter is a particular feature of Eastern Countries, it reflects their connections with roots, family and ancestors. This day is not time for being sad, crying or wearing black clothes, but otherwise, people smile, wear holiday clothes, share food and stories. They believe that in this day souls of their departed relatives are on the cemetery and celebrate this day with them.
