Love is Potatoes

International Competition

( / 2017 / 90’)

Aliona’s inheritance is the equivalent of six square meters: one sixth of a house where her mother grew up, before she escaped to Holland. Lost in the middle of the Russian countryside, the director is not emotionless when she finds some of her family keepsakes, hidden in that wooden house. Among old pictures, a lot of shoes and memories of her grandmother’s potatoes recipe, Aliona makes an emotional journey through the past, looking for her origins. Love is Potatoes, surrounded by the animations of Italian artist Simone Massi, tells a tale about the soviet fear and about Stalin’s time. The film faces with bravery the flame about a fear that is still burning.
