Andrei Platonov, one of Russia’s most paradoxical writers, glorified the revolution and communism only to see his son become a victim of Soviet repression. A hero in World War II, he returned home with incurable tuberculosis. The fate of Platonov and the time he lived in echoed in his great works ‘The Foundation Pit’ and ‘Chevengur’. In ‘The Innermost Man’ filmmaker Roma Liberov Liberov fuses the elements of Platonov’s biography with the seven days of creation. The film tells a tragic story of the birth and collapse of the new world, where a larger-than-life communist dream falls to pieces under the press of reality, and Soviet songs become intertwined with tracks by ‘Shortparis’ and ‘Grazhdanskaya Oborona’ music bands.
