        • Childhood Dreamscape


          from Nadya Primak Added 317 4 0

          It is well known among psychologists today that our early childhood years are also our formative ones. This short film appropriates many public domain clips of old Soviet footage (namely cartoons but also the live action comedy "Wake Up Lenochka!" and "At the Warm Sea" ). I chose to appropriate Soviet cartoons because I spent my very early years in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, till the age of 4 when my family moved to the United States. I was born in 1991 — the following post-soviet years were exceptionally difficult for many Russians. My goal was to reflect on grasping at these strands of memory, before I left Russia. Although these Soviet cartoons aren't the same as the cartoons I saw as a child, I chose them for their strange, melancholic, sometimes disturbing qualities. Apprehension simmers under the surface, as the mind struggles to unveil what the heart has repressed. Near both birth and death we are fragile, and our hearts are exposed. We depend on others for everything. It is this fragility and innocence which I think all of us fear and yet yearn for simultaneously. The video opens with text reading "Time to sleep..." The sound is from a 1957 Moscow Theater performance of Tanya, a novel by Aleksei Arbuzov, adapted for radio. The song is a poem sung by Maria Babanova, written by Vladimir Mayakovsky. It is a love poem, about the fragility of the heart. TRANSLATION OF TEXT/SONG: Narrator (Maria Babanova): Now my childhood is over. You know Lermond, is always seems like my childhood hasn't ended. It's still going on, just in a different city, without me. How thin and tender is human love, And transparent as a crystal. Barely bump it (whilst playing) And it will break, such a shame It happens all the time The more tender your love It happens all the time The more tender, the sooner It could break forever I cherish your image in my heart But my lips are silent Gaze at me with more passion My eyes will tell you everything Now my heart is open If you would like — break it Now my heart is open If you would like — break it But in this heart you will kill yourself My heart beats, a captive bird At least once I must glance at you I cannot live without you I cannot lose you
