Studio «Vertov and Co» with the participation of ARTE
(France—Germany), YLE TV (Finland), Federal Agency of Culture and
Cinematography of Russia
«Our Motherland» tells the story of the director's trip in search of
his classmates from school # 52 in Lvov with whom he studied in
Soviet times. It is made up of 33 short novellas about 33 classmates
of the author. Only a few of them still live in Lvov today.
The rest are scattered throughout the world. What can unite the
former pioneers of the «Gagarin» group? What does «motherland
» mean to them today, the motherland to which they swore
loyalty in the spring of 1973 when they joined the ranks of the pioneers?
