Her short film “Panic” is a personal story of a woman’s inner world, which was shown at the festival on June 14. But Vladimir Leshchov’s dedication to parents “Comeback” will take part in the main short film competition.

The director says: “It’s a film about my childhood, about my parents, my friends. When we talk about visual language, I tried to endure it in such calm tones. In time, we remember everything left in the past in such pastel tones. ”

Director Vladimir Leshchov is a multiple winner of the National Prize “Kristaps the Great”, an author accepted in the international festival, who creates philosophically capacious, human stories about dreams and memories. These are little boy’s childhood memories of mom, dad and hockey. The director remembers: “I wanted to become an astronaut. In the 1970s, I think almost every boy wanted to be an astronaut. Of course, he also wanted to be a hockey player. ”

Vladimir Leshchov has his own handwriting, which is characterized by a fine line and laconic imagery. Comeback is also reminiscent of the director’s childhood animation style. Director Edmunds Jansons comments: “He is an author in the sense of the word. He creates his own world, speaks his own language and tells his own stories. ”

Vladimir Leshchov is participating in the Annecy competition for the sixth time with his filigree films.

Director Roze Stiebra, commenting on Leshchov’s work, emphasizes: “He is different with his handwriting in such a way that he takes it deeply and really. It’s clearly a work of art he creates. “
