LES SOVIETS PLUS L'ÉLECTRICITÉ

by Nicolas REY
2001 / Super 8mm / color / sound / 1S / 175' 00

A cinetrip to a defunct country. Super-self-production in Sviemacolor.
Wandering through Russia as if through someone else's house. " Day two is the worst. It was the same in the train: on the second day, I stamped my feet impatiently. Then, from the third day on, it gets better. You get used to the slowness, to the monotonous landscape, to a life made up of short sleep-eat-wait cycles having absolutely nothing to do with the usual timing of a day. "
Advertisements for linoleum as if it were some precious stone, and entire cities - built on gold mines - left abandoned. There is no such thing as Russian chaos.
Just "Europe" stretching all the way to the Pacific Ocean, and no longer merely to the ghostly Oural Mountains.
