The Documentaries of Sergei Loznitsa

MUBI Special

In the Fog

Sergei Loznitsa Belarus, 2012

Western frontiers of the USSR, 1942. The region is under German occupation. A man is wrongly accused of collaboration. Desperate to save his dignity, he faces an impossible moral choice.

My Joy

Sergei Loznitsa Ukraine, 2010

The tale of truck driver Georgy. Georgy leaves his home town with a load of goods, but he is forced to take a wrong turning on the motorway, and finds himself in the middle of nowhere.


Sergei Loznitsa Russia, 2004

This film depicts one day of an operating factory. It consists of two parts: the first one is called Steel, the second, Plaster. Metal produced by people enslaves them and reduces their lives to pure reflexes. Masculine and feminine, hard and soft, whole and fragmented.

The Settlement

Sergei Loznitsa Russia, 2002

Perception is the key to Sergei Loznitsa’s wordless black and white film-essay The Settlement, which gradually envelops the viewer in the day-to-day activities of a rural mental institution in Russia.


Sergei Loznitsa Russia, 2002

A collection of still pictures of residents of Russian countryside. Not a single word. Only long look into the camera. Landscape. Flow of time.

The Train Stop

Sergei Loznitsa Russia, 2000

Speeding trains slice through the silence of the small train stop. The whistle on the locomotive and the thunder of the wheels disappear into the night, but fail to wake up people at the station. People just continue to sleep. What do they wait for? What will wake them up?
