1991

VIFF Immersed

After the collapse in 1991, the people of the 15 countries that fell out of the USSR were nowhere ready to experience the calamities that were in the years to come. 30 years later, the people of the former Soviet Union haven’t had the chance to process and recover from the traumas of the transitional times buried deep inside them. In this room-scale VR documentary, the director delves into his father’s experiences as a composer after the collapse. This unique perspective recounts a personal story from Turkmenistan, yet a very commonly shared history of the people’s strain of Post-Soviet countries.
