Meet Robert, Ukraine's 'best private detective', as he drives you round the beautiful Black Sea port of Odessa.This documentary, broadcast in February 2009 on Al Jazeera's Witness strand, offers a unique view on daily life in post-Soviet Ukraine.
It is a long and tricky process making a documentary. In 2006, whilst taking a Russian course in Odessa, director Raj Yagnik met Robert Papinyan and thought he'd make a good subject for an observational documentary.
The following year Grisha Rudko was sent out from Moscow to film Robert and the following "trailer" was cut - as a way of selling the film to a broadcaster.
The film was commissioned by Al Jazeera the following year.
