Very lonely flicks are these:
After losing contact with Earth, Astronaut Lee Miller becomes stranded in orbit alone aboard the International Space Station. As time passes and life support systems dwindle, Lee battles to maintain his sanity - and simply stay alive. His world is a claustrophobic and lonely existence, until he makes a strange discovery aboard the ship. Source
Astronaut Sam Bell has a quintessentially personal encounter toward the end of his three-year stint on the Moon, where he, working alongside his computer, GERTY, sends back to Earth parcels of a resource that has helped diminish our planet's power problems. Source

Khatyn was a village in Belarus, in Lahojsk district, Minsk Voblast. On March 22, 1943, the population of the village was massacred during World War II by the 118th Schutzmannschaft battalion, formed in July 1942 in Kiev, mostly from Ukrainian collaborators, prisoners of war and deserters and the Waffen-SS special battalion "Dirlewanger"...
...That afternoon, the Schutzmannschaft Batallion 118, reinforced by troops from the Dirlewanger Brigade, a unit mostly composed of criminals recruited for anti-partisan duties, entered the village and drove the inhabitants from their houses and into a shed, which was then covered with straw and set on fire. The trapped people managed to break down the front doors, but in trying to escape, were killed by machine gun fire. 149 people, including 75 children, were killed. The village was then looted and burned to the ground... Source

... that I took a mesmerizing journey to the bluest moon last weekend! That was Anneke van Giersbergen and her band who played live in Moscow Hall. I'm loving all the Gathering albums with her vocals, as well as all her solo works and guest appearances and it's love at first sight and sound. So I wouldn't forgive myself if I missed that show. Well, it's hard for a moonling to find many words when he's emotionally overfilled... Generally, we remain happy and silent. And I do!
Anneke and the guys were fantastic! She is not ever changing like everything...
And a couple of "soft songs" that I filmed:
My daddy couldn't come this time but he asked me to ask Anneke to sign this ^^^ for him.
Well, done! Now he is happy and proud too.
