The film Give me back the propeller is an idiosyncratic personal reflection on a mythical image of masculinity in cinema and the clash between cinematic representation and real life.
Endlessly repeated shots of airplanes and paratroopers taken from a film by Alexander Dovzhenko Aerograd (1935) accompanied by an absurd anthem to mythical masculine powers, these images and music had been haunting for a long time until they found their counterpart – a documentary footage accidentally shot a few years ago. Combination of two different materials created a comment on time, space, cinema and reality.
