Jan Bosdriesz’ father was a fanatical collector of gramophone records. Most exotic and romantic were the records by the banned Russian singer: Pyotr Leshchenko, popular Russian singer from the nineteen thirties and forties. In the film, Jan Bosdriesz will go looking for any memories he can find in Eastern Europe of Leshchenko. During his research trip, he was however repeatedly confronted with memories of the family he grew up in. That in turn became an important part of the film.


About the film:

The film has been screened at festivals in The Netherlands, US, Romania and Germany. The film was also broadcasted in The Netherlands.
