Dniuka, a documentary produced by TV Belsat, directed by Andrei Kutsila and Aleksnader Nalivayka, won the first prize for short documentary film at the 4th International Documentary Film Festival TRANZYT in Poznan.
The documentary is a story of a Belarusian village in Polesia. Dniuka in a local dialect means “just a regular day”. In a small house, decorated with hand-made embroidery, live two elderly people: Antanina Astopova and grandfather Viktar. He is drinking and trying to answer a question: why people live, and the grandma sighs. In winter they are subjected to a boredom, but in spring live returns. The documentary is a picturesque and naturalistic story on a micro-cosmos of old people. Sometimes funny, sometimes saddening.
