DIRECTOR: Alexei Popogrebsky - RUSSIA

Just out of school, young Pavel arrives at a remote meteorological research station in the frozen Russian Arctic. It’s to be a summer of learning and adventure under the tutelage of the wise and crusty Sergei, whose multi-year tour of duty is coming to an end. Misplaced confidence and youthful immaturity lead to a string of potentially deadly deceptions. The deliberate pace of life in the Arctic, combined with the disorienting round-the-clock sunlight, sets the stage for a thriller infused with equal parts psychological trauma and physical endurance. A meditation on man’s ability to cope with harsh nature and extreme isolation, Popogrebsky’s visually dazzling morality tale won Silver Bears at the Berlin Film Festival for both lead actors and the cinematography prize for Best Artistic Achievement. (124 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Roads to Koktebe (03), Simple Things (07).


Interests: Narrative Feature.
