Once Upon a Time in Petaouchnok (2008)

Once upon a time in Petaouchnok is about ordinary people and lives. 8 individuals coming from different backgrounds and professions share their fears, desires and hopes, in short; their take on life, through the lense of small mundane details. The performance is situated on the boundary between documentary and fiction and could be seen as a silent revolution of people on the border of disappearance.
