Director: LeAnn Erickson | Producer: LeAnn Erickson
Focus Years: 2007 | Country: United States
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 ‘the old country’ her grandparents had left behind. As Erickson travels to Russia, the search for a sense of ‘place’ sparks a re-examination of her family’s immigrant past. Her own return to America sets in motion an interior journey that leads her to discover a new vision of an ‘old country’. Through immigrant memories, real and imagined, 'Folk Songs' explores issues of personal identity and their connection to land, language and belonging.
