Anyu oder wie Stalin seine Nase verlor

A Film by Lina Walde

Synopsis

A long time ago in Eastern Europe the turmoil following a revolt against Soviet occupation leads to the separation of a small child and her mother. While the mother is forced to flee the country, her daughter is raised by a bunch of precocious geese.
After 5 years of separation the child gets on its way to meet the mother in exile.
Anyu, which means mother in hungarian, is a story about the inner life of a refugee child. Anyu is also an experimental approach how to visualize memories in its different layers and shapes and finding their counterpart in animation-techniques and materials.
Anyu is also a story based on interviews with real-exisiting persons.
