Ja zabudu etot den’ (I Will Forget This Day) by Alina Rudnickaja (Russia)
Alina Rudnickaja has succeeded in dissecting a short and touching moment in the life of many women. Actually, the decision has long been taken, when the camera describes their frozen faces in the waiting room outside the operating theatre. In these stylized black and white images, this moment culminates for the viewer in an existential decision about life and death.
