CARDBOARD PIER

Kirill Kotelnikov | 2020 | 93 MINS
Russia | Subtitles
With elections looming, four journalists from Moscow set out to test the political climate in a remote village with a population of 46.

In Detail

The local factory used to meet half the entire country’s demand for cardboard, but times are hard and Udarnik now hides a terrible secret.

The culture-clash between the supposedly sophisticated metropolitans and the intensely reticent villagers is conveyed with a clever script and atmospheric photography, showing once again how Russian cinema continues to keep open a prized space for black comedy.
