Looking for Déni, documentary, 18'59
Kazakhstan is a country of snow and trains, where infinite rails lead nowhere. Déni is looking for trails of his childhood in this country, to which his people were deported by Stalin in 1944. He will find himself confronted with his Chechen origins and his place of a man in this patriarchal society. This journey through memories will be punctuated by encounters with the Chechen community.
