Trailer ver. 0.1

Very first version of trailer for my documentary:

The story in the diary is solved and will be integrated part of the movie. Of course there's love involved, but sadly without happy ending... I'd like to explore some more aspects of life of the author but there are about few years missing. I know who's story of child, grandchild and even grand grandchild but I don't know how she married whom she married if in diary was someone different... I will keep researching...

So, the story of diary continues. I just found Russian translation of this diary made in 1969 by granddaugher of lady who had written it. From introduction word we getting to know that lady had lived in Munich and in 1893 through Latvia has gotten to Moscow. Dairy is describing her the darkess and the most tragic two months of life. She's in deep depression and have grand feel of guilt of the things she done to her family. It's still not clear what exactly it was but reading is in progress...

In the meantime I'm editing footage and recording voiceovers for the other segments of documentary . I guess the dairy will change construction of it a lot but still until I won't know what's exactly there I can't make any decisions.

I'm posting some screenshots - family of Ikov's:

The one of the most interesting thing I found among stuff left in apartments is handwritten diary from 1891. It's in German but I hardly can recognize words. Specialist has been already found to "decrypt" it. It's not going to be easy as it has fifty numbered pages. I can't wait to find out what it's about. It's very exciting.
