In 1913 Sophia and Dimitry Makedonsky were teenagers when they left Russia for the United States. Growing up in the Midwest, filmmaker LeAnn Erickson often heard stories of â€˜the old countryâ€™ her grandparents had left behind. As Erickson travels to Russia, the search for a sense of â€˜placeâ€™ sparks a re-examination of her familyâ€™s immigrant past. Her own return to America sets in motion an interior journey that leads her to discover a new vision of an â€˜old countryâ€™. Through immigrant memories, real and imagined, 'Folk Songs' explores issues of personal identity and their connection to land, language and belonging.
