HOW TO SAVE A DEAD FRIENDMarusya Syroechkovskaya
Le film commence avec l’enterrement de Kimi. Je retrouve devant le cimetière la mère et la sœur de Kimi. Il neige, il fait gris. Le cercueil est scellé, je jette une motte de terre dans le trou. Une plaque marron dans la neige : Kiril Valeirevitch 14 II 1998 - 04 XI 2016. Le ciel est blanc, des flocons épais recouvrent le paysage, les murs, les tombes, les rares fleurs, les bâtiments.
