★★★★ "Elegantly photographed, sound-designed to precise and goose-bumping effect, this is a rare and haunting work of memory-gleaning" Telegraph
An autobiographical documentary, a fiction that’s also an essay and an extended poetic meditation on the ability of the image to represent experience. Sarah Turner’s film is a ghost story that explores what we forget and how we remember. The stunning imagery comes solely from the window of the Trans-Siberian train, shot first in 1988 and then again in 2008, and culminating at the haunting expanse of Lake Baikal, the deepest lake in the world.
16 September screening will be followed by director Sarah Turner in conversation with LFF Festival Producer Helen DeWitt.
