U

Videofilm U constructed on the basis of russian cosmism philosophy. It discovers phenomenology of construction of myth in culture and its transformation in migration.
Narration of the film is based on biography of Yuri Gagarin (first man to space). But the structure refers to hagiography icons, which is enhanced by the set of the film in the Palestinian landscape with local actors to act. Music for the film is based on deconstruction of baroque music and religious songs.
