Of course, it’s not easy to choose one film above all others, but the first one that comes to my mind is Paradise (Chastie, 1995, Kazakhstan, 23 min.) by Sergej Dvortsevoy.

Life is full of unique, small, ‘magic’ moments, and for me a good documentary film has to catch some of those in order to stay in the memory of the viewer. Paradise is a film with pictures that burn into your brain like one of your own experienced memories.

It’s also a film that combines humor with respect for the people it portrays, which is an undefeatable combination.
