Poetins mama Short documentary , 2003, 51 min.

Seventy-seven-year-old Vera Putina is convinced that Vladimir Putin is the son whom she sent from Georgia to his grandparents in Russia at a young age and whom she never saw again. Director Ineke Smits does not bother to establish the truth via documentation or other evidence, but made a portrait of voluble Vera. The Georgian village where Vera lives is also something else. In Metechi, people at a graveyard picnic first raise their glasses to `that noble man Stalin'; and all the streets of Metechi are called Stalin Street. Smits captured some hilarious moments without derision, offers a view of life in Georgia and persuades Vera to divulge more and more fragments of her life and to explain why Vladimir could be her son.
