2011 Film Fund Grantee “My Father Evgeni” college screenings
From 1961 through 1979 Evgeni Zagdansky was editor-in-chief of the Kiev Popular Science Film Studio.
From 1981 through 1992 his son, a film director, Andrei worked in the same film studio.
In 1992 Andrei along with his family left Kiev and settled in New York.
Evgeni stayed behind.
Evgeni’s letters to Andrei and Andrei’s narrative of father’s life intertwine in the multi-layered fabric of the film creating a portrait of the man, his epoch and a self-portrait of the auteur.
