You Will Remember This depicts images of the artists’ father in his hospital bed (derived from the only known video ever taken of him months before his death) his own heavily accented voice is heard telling one of his many charismatic stories of determination and survival in the USSR in the late 1950’s. The story explains how he acquired his first car (a soviet made Volga) during communist rule and an underground black market culture.
