Film Screening: Sorokin Trip

15 September 2019


“All who have made… breakthroughs in art or literature are people with a certain degree of cultural arrogance. It is necessary to restrain oneself in real life.” The film is the first documentary about the writer Vladimir Sorokin.

Childhood in Gazoprovod—a small town outside of Moscow, with an unsociable, alienated father and a mother who was forced to retire early due to a heart defect, followed by a youth spent in the circle of Moscow conceptualists and full of conflicts with the KGB… “All of us form in the childhood years. I remember very well how this reality; these circumstances were shaping me.” A portrait of Vladimir Sorokin, a classic of contemporary Russian literature, author of Marina’s Thirtieth Love, Blue Lard, and Day of the Oprichnik, the film is not so much a biopic of a great master as a story of a real man and a contemporary of his time.

The picture is co-authored by Anton Zhelnov and Yuri Saprykin, the former famous for his documentaries about Joseph Brodsky, Sasha Sokolov, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, and was filmed by the cinematographer Mikhail Krichman, best known for his work on the films of Andrey Zvyagintsev and Aleksey Fedorchenko.
