Pod elektricheskimi oblakami

Under Electric Clouds

 
Ein bizarres Ufer in Nebel und Schnee. Überall verstreut Teile aus Stahl und Beton. Das Skelett eines Wolkenkratzers. Unfertige Autobahnbrücken in flacher Landschaft. Eine riesige Pferdefigur aus Metall. Und eine Lenin-Statue, deren ausgestreckter rechter Arm ins Nirgendwo weist. Ein kaltes, erstarrtes Zwischenreich, in dem sich vollendete Vergangenheit und imaginäre Zukunft treffen. Ziellos bewegen sich Menschen durch diese surreale Welt. Alte Gewissheiten gelten nicht mehr, Verwandte und Freunde sind verschwunden, die Ideale vom Winde verweht. In sieben Episoden verdichtet Alexey German Jr. den Seelenzustand seines Landes zu einem symbolischen Film der langen Plansequenzen, einem fließend choreographierten Tanz der Menschen und der Kamera. (Berlin International Film Festival 2015)

Russia 2017. The world could be on the verge of a great war. People are anxious that things could fall apart. Revolving around an unfinished building, a diverse group of outsiders struggle to find their place in this rapidly changing society, making up the mosaic of existence that is life itself … With sophisticated visuals and wit, writer-director Alexey German Jr. boldly pursues his exploration of Russian culture and politics by reaching deep into the soul of the human spirit.
