Under Electric Clouds

Pod elektricheskimi oblakami

Directed by Aleksei German Ml.
Russia, Ukraine, 2015
  • Russian
  • English


A work of epic ambition, this vision of near-future Russia consists of seven vignettes centered on an unfinished building whose architect perhaps went mad.

Our take

A grandiose vision of Russia’s future (in fact, 2017!) by Aleksei German Jr., son of the legendary director Aleksei German (Hard to Be a God). As with Zvyagintsev’s Leviathan, a building takes on epic new meaning as different people’s stories whirl around its totemic hulk in this audacious drama.
