In conversation with Sergei Loznitsa and Critic Neil Young
Beautifully filmed, Life, Autumn presents a portrait of a small village in rural Russia, near the city of Smolensk, with its aging population. Despite the shortage of basic necessities, life carries on. In the strikingly visual, award-winning Factory, Loznitsa and his film crew observe the inner workings and rhythms at a factory during the course of one day. Less is more for Landscape, an austere but absorbing formalist exercise consisting entirely of left-to-right tracking shots depicting people waiting for a bus in the Russian town of Okulovka (Variety).
