From the author: “Pyotr Mamonov is a genius, one of those who shaped my consciousness, a man whose name for me is a sign of that irreconcilable position that an artist should occupy in cultural and social terms. Quite unexpectedly, I was very close and found a friend whom I seem to understand. This friend turned out to be Ilya, the son of Mamonov. When I suggested that Ilya make a film about him, he immediately warned me that if I wanted to contact his father in this way, then I would not succeed.
