COME AND PLAY / Daria Belova / 2013 / Russia / Germany / 30 min

Fiktio
Russian, English subtitles

Berlin. Grisha, a Russian-German boy, fools around with a wooden stick toygun. The longer he plays, the further he is thrust into an altered reality. The boundaries between the past and the present, the real and the surreal, start to blur. Images from bygone Berlin appear; streets and buildings still carry the memories of war. Suddenly, he is caught in a nightmare of another lifetime, nightmare that is still present today. “Come & Play” is a film about the memory of a place. Time does not disappear and the past does not go away. Everything coexists in one moment.
