Plot synopsis
Composer Alexander Knaifel’s work A Silly Horse consists of 15 stories for a singer and piano. Each story has its title, and these titles were used to find newsreel clips from the 20th century, which have nothing in common except that they are archive material. The music and the image magically combine to create the story of a boy who hears and sees only the words “Why dreams”, which gave this film its name.

Selected in the following festivals :
- Festival Russian kino 'Moscow Premier Screenings', Moscow (Russia), 2021
