Documentary made from images of Russian on-board cameras
Cinema Capitol, 230 W. Dominick St., will present the Belarusian documentary “The Road Movie” for its upcoming film series Out After Midnite at 10:30 pm Saturday. The film will be in Russian with English subtitles.
Mosaic of asphalt adventures, landscape photographs and some of the craziest imagery, Dmitrii Kalashnikov’s film is a compilation of video footage shot exclusively with Russian dash cameras. The epitome of a documentary that has to be seen to be believed, it captures a range of spectacles through the windshield, including a comet crashing into Earth, an epic wildfire and a multitude of motorists in anger taking road rage to totally new and unexpected levels.
The film received the “Best Documentary” award at the Fest New Directors / New Films Festival and was nominated for “Best Documentary Feature” at the Nashville Film Festival and the Bratislava International Film Festival.
Rogerebert.com describes the film as “A Tapestry of the Absurd”.
The film is 67 minutes long and is unrated, although it has adult content and may not be suitable for children. Admission is $ 8, and like all events in the Out After Midnite series, a small popcorn, small fountain drink, and pizza donated by Boyz from Italy (while supplies last) are included. . The doors will open for the event at 10 a.m.
