Private Project


Quarantine, our time. People go crazy with self-isolation. A 6th grade WELDER tolerates his wife, who makes scandals every day because of his addiction to drinking. One day, he breaks down and leaves home. Several bottles of beer come to the rescue in the morning. He is unhappy that his wife considers him a drunkard, but even strangers notice his passion for alcohol. The welder mumbles to himself, recalling past merits, and gifts from the factory lost in a revelry frenzy. A languid monologue is interrupted by a voice from behind.

Director Statement

The viewer is able to see himself, his friends and images from other works of art or religious motives in the heroes of the film. The manner in which the picture is presented may seem specific, but each frame and line is full of references, quotes and humor. All this balances on the blade of a knife - between thick and thin, black and white. Like the painting itself, the inspiration for its creation descended absolutely spontaneously - I was walking along the left bank of Kiev, as Alexander Rosenbaum's composition "The Jewish Tailor" performed by Shufutinsky began to play in my headphones. The confluence of music and environment gave birth to an idea, and the composition itself became the soundtrack for this short film.
