AFONKA DOES NOT WANT TO HERD REINDEER ANYMORE
Afonka uz nechce past soby, Rep. Ceha, 2004,  76 min.
Regie: Rysavy Martin
VO ceha / Subtitrari in engleza

Afanasy (Afonka) Konstantinov ar vrea de multe ori sa-si schimbe viata grea de nomad si sa se stabileasca intrun loc, insa matusa sa mai indepartata,  Maria Yegorovna Kolesova, vrea ca rudele ei sa continue stilul traditional de viata al stramosilor lor. Prins intre vagile idei despre o noua viata si dragostea de munti si pastorit, Afonka simte ca nu va fi niciodata ca stramosii lui.
Descoperirile etnografice efectuate in timpul filmarii documentarului i-au oferit regizorului ceh oportunitatea de a-si prezenta experienta din Siberia contemporana, o regiune plina de contraste. Filmul reuneste atat probleme de baza ale destinului uman, cat si relatii sociale si soarta populatiei: este o poezie a faptelor compusa din scene lungi ale luptei pentru viata din fiecare zi.

ENGLISH VERSION

The film draws a portrait of the difficult life of the Siberian Evens. While Afanasy (Afonka) Konstantinov would often like to end the difficult nomadic life and settle down, his great-aunt Maria Yegorovna Kolesova wants her relatives to maintain the traditional lifestyle of their ancestors. Trapped between vague ideas about a new life and his love of the mountains and herding, Afonka feels that he will never be exactly like his ancestors.
The ethnographic discoveries made through the documentary film have enabled the Czech director to express his personal experience of the contemporary Siberia contrasts. His wide view touches the basic issues of the human destiny, social relations and the nation’s fate; it’s poetry of facts composed of long scenes of the everyday hunt of life.
