UNDER ELECTRIC CLOUDS

by Alexey German Jr.

synopsis

Russia, 2017. A bizarre riverbank in fog and snow. The building work for the construction of a spectacular high-rise block has been shelved following the death of the oligarch financing the project. The young heirs arrive from around the globe. The architect Peter is struggling with himself and with the world. A Kyrgyz worker is searching for his colleagues. An impoverished intellectual gives in to his fate. People drift aimlessly around an unfinished skyscraper through a surreal world that appears to be on the verge of collapse. In seven episodes, Alexey German Jr. condenses the spiritual state of his country into a symbolic film of long sequences; a fluidly choreographed dance of people and the camera.
