Oleg Klimov: Brieven aan jezelf

Director: Masha Novikova
For twelve years, war photographer Oleg Klimov documented the disintegration of the Soviet Union. His photos appeared on the front pages of many Western newspapers, as silent witnesses to war atrocities. But his career had a profound personal effect on Oleg. After many years, he is now unexpectedly contending with a war trauma himself. Longing for inner peace, Oleg revisits Nagorno-Karabakh, Abkhazia and Chechnya. His memories are offset by other realities: those of the people he portrayed at the time.
