Stains

“Stains” takes place between two summers. In the summer of 2008 the director left for Ukraine with her camera to tell a story of abandonment: the relationship of an abandoned daughter and an alcoholic runaway father. But as he started telling his stories of escapes, lies, and life as an anarchist fugitive under Soviet rule, the director’s confrontation with her father turned out to be the story of a man who chose to rebel and live under an assumed identity. With the fall of Communism, something in him fell apart. It is the story of an entire generation of men who became helpless, and turned to alcoholism to try and cope. Eight years later, she returns to him in order to complete the portrait, to understand, and to experience that pain once again.
