A Tale of Singers and Murderers

Von Sängern und Mördern

Directed by Stefan Eberlein
Germany, 2016


A penal colony in Russia where stagnation is enforced arbitrarily by the authorities. All that the thousands of prisoners here have to comfort them as they serve their time is singing in front of a mass audience. Stefan Eberlein gives them a voice – and breaks open the chains of their anonymity.
