Vitaly Mansky Jerman, 2016

Lex Lucas's rating of the film Close Relations

Vitali Mansky's family chronicle over the lapse of one year, before and after Crimea annexation. We get to know several family's members scattered around Ukraine and Russia, giving important and insightful testimonies about their complicated homeland relations. Moreover it has brilliant moments of testimony about the Soviet Union and the question of identity when their history was falsificated by propaganda.
