In the Fog (2012)by Sergei Loznitsa

In the Fog
by Sergei Loznitsa

Through showcasing  the tribulations in Belarus, ‘In the Fog’  is an important remembrance of the devastating consequences of war in a less commemorated, though drastically affected region. Sushenya’s life takes a terrible turn, when he is suspected by the Partisans of Nazi participation. A highly characterised and deeply psychological depiction of suspicion plays out as Loznitsa ruminates on the fog that surrounds morality in desperate circumstances. The film premiered at Cannes, in 2012, where it competed for the Palme D’or and received instant acclaim. It has been lauded by critics as a “smart and thought-provoking”, as well as an “intense, slow-burning and haunting drama.”

English subtitles are embedded in the video. Screened from 16.05 to 23.05.

This week’s screening is available to UK visitors only courtesy of UK rights holder New Wave Films.
