Mom’s hairpins

Mom’s hairpins

The story takes place in the Jewish Ukraine town in 1941. Mom’s hairpins – the only thing left to 10-year-old Yasha from his family – helped him and his companion in misfortune, the goat Fedya, to escape from the German punishers and swim on a frail boat to the left bank of the Dnieper – where the Soviet troops are. Prize for the best short film, Moscow International Film Festival, 2019; Student Film Award, BAFTA, 2020.
