Impact Film Festival 2023 Presents A Screening Of The Fine Line

(MENAFN- ForPressRelease) The Impact film Festival (SWIFF) is the main platform for the upcoming season of screenings of films from the brightest directors from around the world. According to the organizers, this is“a prestigious platform that serves as a springboard for young authors who want to showcase their work on the big screen.”
Fine Line is a documentary film about the place called Sinegorye in the Far North. The period between 1970s and 1980s saw Sinegorye actively building civil and industrial projects, one being the one of its kind Kolyma Hydroelectric Station, matched by a burst of cultural activity and social growth. However, like many other settlements in Magadan Province, Sinegorye started to fall into decline after the USSR collapsed... Life in harsh climate isn't easy for Ruslan and Oksana, the two main characters, but they chose to stay and work for the benefit of the Sinegorye community. Oksana spends her days at the local nursing home, easing the loneliness of the elderly and encouraging them to live and enjoy life. Her caring attitude brings her in touch with her neighbor Ruslan who is surviving the loss of his mother. Feeling nostalgic, Ruslan invites Oksana on a trip to his childhood home and some of the now abandoned sites, which puts them both into a state of utter hopelessness. Its past achievements gone, Sinegorye quietly awaits its death like residents of its nursing home. Ruslan feels bitter and begins to think about leaving for a better place. Only a radical improvement can make him change his mind. But is there any hope for Sinegorye? Watch the film to find out.
Remoteness from road infrastructure and low quality of life forces many northerners to leave their long established residence for better places. As a result, the areas in the Russian Far East now have fewer prospects for development. Population decline can be stopped by improving people's living conditions. .
Population retention has been a topic with many filmmakers, but the negative trend persists in Northern Russia. "The more ignorant and unaware we remain of the real consequences of the past events, the further our society drifts from the truth. We must learn to analyze our past experiences and draw conclusions that can lead to positive change and revival in the Russian hinterland. We designed Fine Line to offer informative and compelling content. It is important that viewers get this message that under no circumstances should one lose heart. Even in the most difficult of life situations, it's very important to never lose hope. The film follows two characters who chose to live in geographically challenging conditions to benefit their community.“Do what you can, with what you've got, where you are.” (Theodore Roosevelt). The characters provide their own version of the political events that started thirty years ago to lead to irreversible deplorable consequences. By showing things as they are, we allow viewers to make their own judgements and conclusions, hoping that one day positive changes will start happening in the Russian hinterland." - director Anna Barsukova.
