Russia today von Annegret Sachse
Dokumentarfilmessay. Microförderung Filmbüro Bremen 2017
D/RU 2020, 93 min
A political documentary essay about Russia, filmed in Kaliningrad. Everyday observations of a region, its inhabitants, a nation - often associative, sometimes metaphorical, rarely unfamiliar.
Runners, numbers, applause. Fishers, horses, plows. Aggression, migration, surveillance, love. 2 spiders, 1 ring of power. Interweaving motifs gathered on their journey through the region, the German filmmaker and her Russian sound recordist assemble a mosaic of reflections on Russia’s current status quo. Fragments of conversations create a temporary space for personal encounters. The audience is invited to enter and connect.
