Nikolai Nekh’s inspiration for his project “Postcard from Raduzhny” comes from his native Siberia. Although he has spent most of his life in Portugal, when Nekh visits the suburbs of Lisbon, he can find reminders of his early memories of the typical small-town Siberian landscape. He thus engages in a dialogue with his father, whom he encourages to share his visual memories. Another documentary about transplanting culture is the “appropriated” video “White Wind,” which shows the obsessive search for landscape and women beyond the boundaries of Europe. –pv-
