Film: “Moscow from Dawn till Dusk”
Over a dozen of colourful pebbles form this mosaic from the capital of modern Russia’s life, that is the huge metropolis. At first sight they vary widely like the worlds of the Orthodox monk, conscript soldiers, a lonely pensioner, a family of Afghan immigrants, a guard in the subway or a help line psychologist. Each of them is placed in some different space, for each individual the time goes by differently and their relations with people surrounding them are diverse as well. However, these micro close-ups compose a certain legible pattern. Some motives, props and situations are repetitive. Some words return. Young filmmakers from the Moscow Higher Courses of Direction created a collective self-portrait characterized by unexpectedly consistent colours.
