Yesterday was screening of Aleksand Kott's movie Spitak.

Gor is flying to Armenia from Moscow to search for his family stuck at the very epicenter of the earthquake. Once there, Gor rushes through what's left from the town in search of his small house. On his way, he meets various characters, each of them with his or her personal tragedy and challenge. The locals strive to find their loved ones - alive or dead. City officials desperately try to restore law and order in the destroyed city. As Gor doesn't give up looking for his family, his wife and small daughter are still alive under the debris. But as long as there is love, there is hope.
