Letters to Max. 2014. Paris. Directed by Eric Baudelaire. In Abkhaz, Russian; English subititles. 103 min.

“When I dropped an envelope in a mailbox in Paris [June 2012], I fully expected that a letter addressed to 'Maxim Gvinjia, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sukhum, Republic of Abkhazia,' would come straight back to my studio with the notice 'destination unknown.' But to my surprise, ten weeks later, I got an e-mail from Max telling me he had received my letter, but could not reply on paper since the post office in Abkhazia cannot handle international mail. I have no idea how or why my letter arrived” (Eric Baudelaire).
