Ash Wednesday (2004)


Experimental documentary

70 minutes

"Ash Wednesday features episodic vignettes which offer a long stare into the grey night of Russia. It is a movie which is at once large and small, drawn from a daily routine. But at the same time its mosaic of fragments and sternly won attentions conjures some larger question about what it means to hope and live and die and fall in love in a place like this—which is to say, the place of the body, bent down beneath the weight of remembrance . . . . Here we are again, between requiem and celebration." Mike Hoolboom
