Arsen is an artist, a romance between imagination and reality begins to emerge in his diary videos.


Dreams, desires, memories are laced with life, creating a subtle metaphysical pattern.


The artist’s inner world, full of selfless love and loneliness, is visualized by director Marat Sarulu with great artistry.


The film won prizes at the Stockholm and Moscow IFFs.


In the spring of 2023, while the festival was in development, news of Marat Sarulu’s death came in.


The film’s presence in the competition program is a tribute to director’s memory and talent.
