Nikita Ovsyannikov’s short film Return is self-described as "an attempt to lead the audience through emotions and feelings of a man who has lost everything, who has lost the very awareness of himself and the world surrounding him. His life turned into a black and white movie and all he had left were his memories and burning desire to go back in time."

Also worth noting: "All scenes were shot using the only light source - the Sun. Light was directed through the set via a complicated system of mirrors."


Ovsyannikov is an independent filmmaker,

living in Russia.
