YURI

and the frustration of our ponies


The sky was bright blue.

How can you understand that?

Bright blue.

 

Yuri is a refugee from Chernobyl. He bakes bread in his anonymous apartment. His customers are fringes, just like him. He searches for answers, for meaning, for the red dot: you are here. Yuri, the warrior of the small gesture.

His world gets disrupted when he meets Angelique. The dot becomes tangible flesh.

YURI shows the extremes that life can bring. The softness of the dream and the painful confrontation with yourself.
