Russia today

Directing: Annegret Sachse


“Russia today” is a political documentary essay about Russia, filmed in the Russian exclave Kaliningrad (German territory until 1945). 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.
