Oriental Elegy

Vostochnaya elegiya

Directed by Aleksandr Sokurov
Japan, 1996
Avant-Garde, Short


Visually impressionistic, atmospherically dense, and narratively opaque, Oriental Elegy is the surreal journey of a displaced spirit (Aleksandr Sokurov) as he wanders in the interminable darkness through the temporal landscape of a quaint and isolated feudal-era fishing village.
