THE PIER OF APOLONOVKA

Germany | 2008

Synopsis
The people on the pier of Sevastopol Bay are a symbol of the inextricable dilemma in which the city finds itself: too impoverished for splendour and glory, and much too alive for the scrap-heap. People such as handsome 14-year-old Push, who finds mopeds much cooler than girl, or shy 13-yearold Nastja, still mourning her lost first love, spend their summer together on the pier. Even 80-year-oldGalina still has a few tears to spare for the bass voice of her erstwhile lover, but not before she completes her morning swim at Apolonovka‘s run-down beach. And then again there‘s wiry, long-distance swimmer Sergej who, despite his 85 years, would certainly never consider neglecting the ‚third point‘ of health - sex. Finally we meet Vova and Andrej on the pier: one a tattooed former prisoner the other a discharged police officer – now working together illegally as divers next to the ships of the Black See Fleet.A summer on Sevastopol‘s pier, a place made fascinating by the encounter between parallel worlds.
