Ja, Andrei Iwanowitsch – Film Über Ein Leben

A Film by Hannes Farlock

Synopsis

JA, ANDREI IWANOWITSCH – FILM ABOUT A LIFE.
Are we able to forget?
The hero of the film is an ordinary person whose name is Andrei. He goes to work, he travels, he helps his neighbours, he lives an active love life. But there is something that makes him stand out. If looking closer we understand that he seems to possess the recipe for eternal and fulfilling life, although fate tested him very hard. When he was 15 years old he was deported to the Buchenwald concentration camp, he survived and didn’t give up even in post-war years when one after the other of his family tragically died. The canny way he masters his everyday life is contrasted with his tough life story. Now being 92 years, he is on his own but completely happy.

    Hannes Farlock

    I was born 1981 in Erlangen, Germany. Staging and managing projects has been my interest ever since. Therefore, I studied Culture and Event Management. During my studies, I founded a student theatre group at my university and staged contemporary plays. During my professional career I had the chance to build on this, I was part of various film projects out of which I developed a deep interest for telling real life stories myself. The last 10 years I worked and traveled extensively in Eastern Europe. “Ja, Andrei Iwanowitsch” is my first own feature-length documentary project.
