The new film of director Ilona Bruvere CONSTRUCTIONS will be premiered at International Documentary Filmfestival Sheffield in official selection called Rebellions.

Rebellions – there are as many ways to rebel as there are humans on this planet—and cinema can be one of them. What happens when a human who wants to change the world meets a camera? What happens when a film changes a human being? Reality is here to be invented and it’s up to us to take it into our own hands. Rebellions is supported by Bertha Foundation.

CONSTRUCTIONS is the story of the house of the famous Latvian translator and poet Uldis Berzins, his everyday life and his rebel son, together with translations, poems and his best friend KGB agent. An online dialogue between the filmmaker and the poet, and the hard construction of a film about a life that is as dynamic and changing as the seasons and the garden.
A house can be a world where obsessions, love, friendship and doubts leave marks in every wall. A house can become a never ending construction and a source of meaning and strength.

Constructions is screening alongside Back Yard in Sheffield on Sunday 18 October at 7:30pm and is available on Sheffield Doc/Fest Selects and Doc/Player from Sunday 18 October at 9:30pm until Thursday 29 October at 11:59pm.
