Exploring the collective life of the generation born as Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space, Mansky worked with over 5000 hours of home movies to create this unique chronicle of everyday life in the Soviet Union.
Over this archive Mansky applies a fictional framework, weaving together a fabricated biography of a Russian - speaking in voiceover - born in 1961. The result is a moving document of the fictional, but nonetheless true life of the generation who grew up in this time of huge change and upheaval.
Screening as part of Open City Documentary Festival 2017
