Synopsis


Dans un village isolé au Nord-Ouest de la Russie, un asile psychiatrique prend place dans une vieille maison en bois. Le lieu et ses habitants semblent préservés de la civilisation. Dans cet espace des origines, aucune voix humaine distincte n'est entendue et la douleur est adoucie.

Tënk's film review


Les brumes estompent l’ordinaire présence qui alourdit les images. Cédons à la myopie. Les sons d’un lointain paisible s’égrènent, nous laissant habiter cette étrangeté rebâtie. Les éléments de La Colonie - précédant film de Sergueï Loznitsa, tourné dans le même lieu - sont transfigurés ici au bénéfice de l’écoute. Ce n’est pour autant pas le sens qui nous parvient plus explicite, la sensation d’habiter soudain une mémoire qui ressemble fort à celle d’une enfance inconnue nous pénètre. Ici la ritournelle n’a pas plus de valeur que la fraîcheur de l’air.

Sergueï Loznitsa

Sergueï Loznitsa, born in 1964 in Belo-Russia (at the time in the USSR), is a Ukrainian director whose documentary work is sometimes on the edge of the experimental. He is a scientist, a specialist in artificial intelligence and a translator of Japanese. After this professional life, Sergueï Loznitsa decided to change his life and went to Moscow to train at the National Institute of Cinematography (VGIK), from which he graduated in 1997. In 2001, he moved with his family to Germany. He has directed 18 documentaries that have won awards at international festivals. His two feature films, "My Joy" (2010) and "Dans la Brume" (2012) were selected at the Cannes Film Festival. In 2014, he shot "Maidan" during the Ukrainian revolution (screened in Cannes). In 2015, "L'Evénement" is presented in Venice. His 2016 documentary, "Austerlitz", follows the journey of tourists in the concentration camps. He then directed two documentaries, "Victory Day" and "The Trial" and a fiction, "Donbass" (Best Director Award at Un Certain Regard). His latest film, "State Funeral", premiered in Venice.
