In Russia - в России
A landmass so vast it’s hard to wrap your head around, spanning over 11 timezones and 2 continents, filled with otherworldly landscapes, countless discrete cultures and crowded cities with rather turbulent histories.
On the one side, this film shows a slice of this relentless diversity of a place rarely visited by tourists - and on the other, it is an exploration of all the different lenses, viewpoints and expectations one can apply in a travel film about a mysterious country riddled with stereotypes.
Over the next few weeks, we will post extra footage, BTS and more info on our Instagram channels: @vincenturban, @muxsux, @timhoeddinghaus, @27km
For this film, I teamed up with my friends Maximilian Neumeier and Tim Höddinghaus. The 3 of us went on a total of 4 trips, each spanning over roughly 10 days, which brought us to 6 distinct locations in 3 different seasons: Moscow in spring, Kamchatka in fall, St. Petersburg, Murmansk, Salekhard and Lake Baikal in Winter.
This project could have never been realised…
