How to Save a Dead Friend
Muzzled by the increasingly autocratic regime of the “Depression Federation”, 16-year-old Marusya decides to join her generation’s suicide statistics by the end of the year. Then she meets Kimi and a love story begins between the two millennials caught in the undertow of their oppressive government. Together, Marusya and Kimi film the euphoria, anxiety and misery of their youth, burning the candle at both ends, fuelled by drugs and music. When Kimi’s addiction threatens to make him fade away forever, Marusya’s camera becomes her last chance to save the fragile soul.
Filmed over the course of 12 years, "How To Save A Dead Friend" is a personal cry from the heart, and a message from a silenced generation.
