what going on?
An experimental feature film, shot by a team of artists from Moscow and Saint Petersburg without any institutional or production support. Gloomy but not entirely devoid of comedy, it represents a rather amusing mixture of slapstick, early avantgarde, Švankmajer-esque animation and Leningrad Necrorealism. At the heart of it is the life story of a depersonalised hermit who has been thrown out of historical time and is stuck in a looped timelessness. This is the story of a solitary war, fought simultaneously in external and internal territories, while blurring the boundaries between them in the dreams and reveries of a madman.
