RUSSIA / OLD PONDS
Sitting in her flat in Old Ponds, a two hour drive outside of Moscow, Tatyana Osipovna Martynova picked up her glasses from the table and said: With my glasses on I can not see anything but without glasses I can read everything up to now – if I would have learned reading. Tatyana has never gone to school.
Nine months later, after having cut the material in Moscow and Budapest I returned in March 2004 to show her "OLD PONDS". While watching the film she said: I can not see anything! But when she talked about it afterwards she remembered sequences as short as four seconds. Having watched the film she said: Now I can say goo-by. Tatyana Osipovna Martynova, born 1903. She died in her apartment on 16 June 2004 in Old Ponds, Russia. She was 101 years old.
