Ja zabudu etot den' (I Will Forget This Day) by Alina Rudnickaja (Russia)
A simplistic and unusual approach to the topic of abortion.
By using a mirroring structure within the film, the director leaves the judgement to the viewer, giving him a space to experience the moment of making the decision, at the same time emphasizing the repetitiveness of this situation within Russian society today.
The director's succeeds in turning a problem thus-far deemed crucial to women only into something that affects all of us, an existential decision about life and death.
