A 16-mm documentary film, shot in Germany, Poland and Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The film has no commentary or dialogue and instead documents landscapes and residents in an observational manner.
Брат is a unique portrait of 1990s Russia. It shows the violence, desperation, poverty and moral decay of a nation in search for a new identity after the collapse of the Soviet Union. It’s a cult movie in Russia and for me an undisputable masterpiece with profound meaning.
