Contenu et Bonus
Entretien avec Arnaud Hée, critique
En travaillant à partir d'images documentaires officielles, Loznitsa détourne le propos de la propagande de l'époque et nous interroge sur le statut réversible des images. Deux grands films politiques sans commentaire, qui permettent de relire l'Histoire tragique et violente de la Russie.

Plot synopsis
How does a crowd react to an historic event when certainties are shaken? Documentary maker Loznitsa collected TV and amateur footage of street protests in 1991. An attempted coup by reactionary communists embroiled Muscovites at the time in chaos and euphoria, fear and debate.
