Presented by Alicia Knock and Pamela Sticht, in the presence of the artist Olga Chernysheva.
Adopting a poetic style in order to document Russia’s passage into consumerist society, Chernysheva’s film Streamboat Dionysius (2004) questions the persistence of the idea of community after the fall of USSR. Anna Jermolaewa’s films are also marked by the era of post communism. Her film Kremlin Doppelgänger (2009) confronts the historic city of Kremlin with its present day copy; a flamboyantly kitsch hotel complex in Turkey.
