Director: Anton Zhelnov
Runtime: 90 min.
Anton Zhelnov and Ilya Belov are known by their projects about the poet Joseph Brodsky (“Brodsky Is Not A Poet”), about the writer Sasha Sokolov (“Sasha Sokolov. The Last Russian Writer”) and about artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakovy (“Poor People. Kabakovy” ). The cameraman of SOROKIN TRIP is Mikhail Krichman, famous for his works in Andrei Zvyagintsev and Alexei Fedorchenko’s films.
Vladimir Sorokin (Norma /The Norm, Goluboe Salo / Blue Salo), Den' Oprichnika / Day of the Oprichnik) is a man who blew up the Soviet literary tradition and built his own world on its ruins. SOROKIN TRIP is the first documentary about the most significant writer and dramatist in modern Russian literature. Sorokin for the first time talks about his own life with utmost frankness: childhood in a worker's settlement near Moscow, life in the workshops of underground artists, persecution by the KGB and pro-Kremlin youth organizations, love for Russian literature and cosmic cold.
SOROKIN TRIP has been filmed in 2019, in Berlin and Moscow.
