Leningrad Retrospective

Leningradskaya retrospektiva

Directed by Aleksandr Sokurov
Russia, 1990


A montage of Leningrad newsreel becomes a composite collage made up of documents-shots, divided in 16 parts, presenting the author’s point of view on Russia and modern times. In the title, Sokurov appears as ‘compiler’ and the selection of the documents is just like an artistic process.
