Overview

Now hilarious, now tragic, now shocking, now mesmerizing: that's Dmitrii Kalashnikov's stunning compilation of video footage from the dash cams of Russian motorists in a nutshell.

The epitome of a you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it documentary, The Road Movie captures a wide range of spectacles through the windshields of cars—including a speeding comet, a terrifying forest fire, horrific crashes and no shortage of drivers taking road rage to operatic levels—all accompanied by bemused commentary from the unseen (and often impressively stoic) individuals behind the wheel.

Producer: Volia Chajkouskaya
Additional Countries: Russia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia

Quality Time

Dutch director Daan Bakker's sly, strange tragicomedy about a quintet of 30-something misfits is told in five parts—all employing their own inventive visual and narrative styles to convey a sense of the dislocation, dysfunction and absurdity roiling the lives of Koen, Stefaan, Kjell, Karel and Jef.
