My Place Ozerna

by Karina Będkowska, Poland, 2022, 59' Greek Premiere

“I don’t want to live either,” confesses Karina to her aunt Slava, triggering a profound search for meaning between two distant relatives. For Karina, the journey from London to Ozerna, a small village in the Ukraine, unexpectedly becomes the beginning of a journey to regain her vitality: it is in Ozerna that she meets her 84-year-old aunt Slava, who has been widowed for many years. Both women have lost their will to live, but a mutual bond of love restores meaning to their lives. Beautifully shot, this tender documentary is a testament to the importance of intergenerational connection and the shared rediscovery of vitality and purpose.
