Sprint to the past

Director: Selkin Fedor.

Feature short film “Sprint to the past ”- is the debut author's project of Selkin Fedor. The famous Russian actors Alexandr Slastin, George Prosalovsky and masters of sport of academic rowing are involved into this film, as well as the director of photography Alexandr Mazur, who was working in camera crew in the last several films of Alexandr Sokurov.

The film tells the story of one of the most beautiful sports-rowing, about the fate of its athletes and their memories in our days. It is the story about the three friends, their sporting rivalry in the early 1980es and about the situation in the sport in our days.

The story in the film is narrated on behalf of the main character – Oleg. At the beginning of the film we see the life in rowing club and the academic rowing championship. We see the struggle between Sergey, Denis and Oleg in this competition, which was at the beginning of Oleg sports career. After he becomes a great sportsman, winner of Olympic games.

Oleg have traveled a lot and was working as a coach in different countries. In our days he is deciding to come back to his homeland. And what he is seeing is disgusting. The most popular and old rowing clubs are closed. He is meeting with his old friends. Sergey is a rich businessman, Denis is a common guard at the gate. After that Oleg is coming to his native rowing club and gets the proposal to become a coach.

The main idea of the film is not only to show the rowing but also to understand the feeling of the main hero, to show the relationship between the characters, to show the situation in sport in our times, that situation is typical not only in sport but in many other spheres of life in Russia. Very good words of Sergey ( one of the main characters ) - “ It worked out like that ! “ also reflects the situation in the life of our country in our times.
