Viktor Kossakovsky Online Retrospective

Yes, of course it is the unique Doc Alliance that brings to us – FOR FREE – seven of Kossakovsky’s film online – UNTIL FEBRUARY 1ST. It is “the first time that they enter the virtual online world and thus also your computer screens”.

It is indeed fantastic, thanks for that. Some of us will have the pleasure to revisit his work, others will have the chance to follow a great director’s development from “Losev” (1989) to “Vivan las Antipodas” (2011), passing by wonderful “Belovs” (1992), the conceptual “Wednesday” (1997), the declaration of love with “Pavel and Lalya” (1998), “Tishe!” (2002), a from-the-window-look from his appartment in St.Petersburg and “Svyato” (2005), the director’s two year old son discovering himself in the mirror. On top of that the film by Carlos Klein, “Where the Condors Fly” (2012), follows Kossakovsky during the shooting of “Vivan las Antipodas”. The latter it has to be said is available for viewing in” the following countries: Czech Republic, Slovakia, Denmark, Portugal, Great Britain, Greece, Sweden, Lithuania, Latvia, Botswana and all Latin American countries.”

More roses to Doc Alliance – if you enter the website you will also be given competent information about each of the films. My advice for the Kossakovsky (smiling to you from a photo taken at the premiere of Vivav… in Venice) film festival you can make for yourself is to go chronologically.
