Train Stops for Five Minutes
The film tells about a town N and its people. “It has been long since the sound of train carriages rolling on the rails beat the rhythm of their lives. A huge stone on the Railway Station Square reminds of the moments when the train used to stop here for longer in order to swallow thousands of people only to spit them out in the wide open spaces of Siberia. Now it stops only for five minutes. Yet this is enough time for farewell kisses and a promise to return. Town N is populated by those who have built homes and given birth to their children here for a purpose, because nothing happens just by chance. Thus, ordinary everyday life in a provincial town N hides people’s extraordinary dreams, memories, discoveries and losses” .
Lisa, Go Home!
One child's soul does not want to reconcile with her surroundings. A crew of film-makers made the effort to record what reflects the generation gap between the little girl Lisa and the world of adults in her family. Part of the continuing conflicts that were recorded occur because of Lisa keeps running away from home. “Why are you always running away? What are you missing?” the little girl hears persistently. However, how is it possible to explain what is compehensible to her own soul only - what is within the indescribably fragile existence of a child? This is a world surrounded by coarse and brutal realities... How long may the child resist this environment and safeguard her own dream?
