Synopsis

Primera part cinematogràfica del megaprojecte multimèdia DAU, dels russos Ilià Khrzhanovski i Sergei Adonyev, una obra crua i ambiciosa que ha comportat deu anys de rodatge, 700 hores de material i centenars d’actors vivint en un set de 12.000 metres quadrats. L’acció transcorre en un institut secret d’investigacions científiques de l’URSS, a través de la mirada d’una cambrera del restaurant del centre, i reflexiona sobre la vigilància i el totalitarisme a l’antiga superpotència. Alcohol, sexe, violència i terror en una de les propostes més radicals dels últims anys. Os de Plata al Festival de Berlín.
