Sausage Roll
A woman and her cat attempt to reach a happy resolution.
By Inga Janiulytė (2018)

A fleeting scene from a remote village in Polesia, south east Belarus. After lunch and liquor on the Saturday before Orthodox Easter at babka Maria’s house. No meat is allowed on the table. The only one exempt from this rule is Maria’s ginger cat…

Recorded as part of a documentary on the Belarusian photographer Siarhiej Leskiec, whilst he was capturing material for his project ‘Whisper’  in which he tries to capture the lives of the last whisperers – women who believe they are healing illnesses with incantations.
