Mada Russia

Israel 2019 | 45 minutes | Russian, Hebrew | Hebrew subtitles

Lina, the youngest daughter to a family of immigrants, watches old video tapes documenting her childhood. They were originally made to present their new life to those who remained in Russia. Like a tour guide, her brother Dennis shows the viewers around the family's rented flat. Lina's mother, Jana, joins the viewing. As the images roll by, Lina grows up for a second time in front of her mother's eyes. Besides the amusement, memories begin to surface, and old wounds are exposed. Will Lina manage to revitalize a connection lost on the way to the promised land?
