A small town and its hopeful citizens are about to embark on a bright new journey. Massive rusty cranes, foreign investors, and the joyful chants of cheerleaders carry the dream of a great nuclear future. Disturbed only by gigantic stinging mosquitoes, the townsfolk celebrate the atomic hurray by engraving the nuclear power plant logo on buildings and soup bowls. Amidst the apparent atomic prosperity, lies a past that no one wants to remember. An island holding terrifying secrets. Stories of shocking and horrible crimes loom on the city just like the dark clouds of mosquitoes descending on its citizens. A world instantly transformed by ideologies, regimes and dreams of economic prosperity. The tales of characters whose lives intersect in a sinister past, nuclear future and the stinging mosquitoes flying through time, sealing their fate together. From the team behind the IDFA Silver Wolf award-winner "Georgi and the Butterflies". Written by
What a beautiful and quirky documentary! A documentary that is funny, poetical and social, all at the same time without boring the viewers with false pretences and intellectual babble.
The story reminded me of a mosquito flight it commences than it stops, it hops on and off the different characters and occasionally it bites. Interestingly the director Andrey Paounov chose to focus on the smallest of creatures the mosquito as a way of exploring the bigger issues: what are we here for? How do we live our lives? How did the past affect us and what are we going to do about the future?
And although the whole documentary is based on both humorous and tense juxtapositions, in the end the most important message of the film comes from the mouth of one of the characters: "There are mosquitoes everywhere!" As if he was saying there are problems everywhere but life goes on. We could deal with them and move on!
