Thursday, 19. April 2012

The new film of Sergei Loznitsa has been selected for the official competition of the International Film Festival Cannes 2012 and competes for The Palme d’Or.

IN THE FOG is a fiction production based on the short novel of the belarussian writer Vassily Bykow.

About the film:
Western frontiers of the USSR, 1942. The region is under German occupation, and local partisans are fighting a brutal resistance campaign. A train is derailed not far from the village, where Sushenya, a rail worker, lives with his family. Innocent Sushenya is arrested with a group of saboteurs, but the German officer decides not to hang him with the others but to set him free. Rumours of Sushenya’s treason spread quickly, and partisans Burov and Voitik arrive from the forest to get revenge. As the partisans lead their victim through the forest, they are ambushed, and Sushenya finds himself one-to-one with his wounded enemy. Deep in an ancient forest, where there are neither friends nor enemies, and where the line between treason and heroism disappears, Sushenya is forced to make a moral choice under immoral circumstances. filmproduction in co-production with GP Cinema Company (RUS), Rija Films (LV), Lemming Film (NL), Belarus-film (BY) and ZDF in association with arte. Supported by Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, DFFF, Eurimages, Riga Film Fund, Latvian Film Fund and Dutch Film Fund.
