Description

Alexey German Jr., son of the late Russian auteur Alexey German, explores a near future where Russian society is slowly unraveling in strange and disparate ways. Electronic messages projected on the dirty clouds cast an eerie glow on the population’s ambiguous future. Weaving together seven interconnected stories—ranging from a dejected Kyrgyz construction worker to a pair of oblivious siblings to a museum guide giving tours in period dress—German uses a steady hand to balance mysterious chimeric stories with bold social allegories amidst a beautifully shot dystopian environment.
