Synopsis: Russian Alexander Sokurov is one of the few contemporary directors to work with modernity. Subversive, provocative and inventive, his cinema —from Odinokij golos celoveka (The solitary voice of man, 1987), to Mat' i syn (Mother and Son, 1997)—is always on the lookout for what it is to be human in history. His latest film is no exception. A satire about the roots of Nazi power, it depicts an ordinary holiday weekend for Adolf Hitler, Eva Braun and leaders of the Third Reich against the backdrop of an immutable alpine landscape and the Nazis' first stinging defeat in the Russian campaign.

 

 

Fabrica Cinema was created in September 1997 by Marco Müller, actually Director of Venice Film Festival, and co-produced an initial series of four films which "spoke the truth" about the reality in the distant societies where, otherwise, it would have been impossible to develop any film project without the collaboration with a courageous producer: Journey to the Sun by Yesim Ustaoglu (Turkey); Moloch by Alexander Sokurov (Russia); Seventeen Years by Zhang Yuan (China) and Adanggaman by Roger Gnoan M’Bala (Ivory Coast).
 
From October 1999 Fabrica Cinema has started to produce first and second features of young film directors from “the rest of the world:
Brainstorm by Lais Bodanzky (Brasil); Blackboards by Samira Makhmalbaf (Iran); No man’s land by Danis Tanovic (Bosnia); Secret Ballot by Babak Payami (Iran); Angel on the right by Djamshed Usmonov (Tadjikistan), Mud by Dervis Zaim (Turkey-Cyprus) and Tropical Malady, by Apichatpong Weerasethakul (Thailand).
Many of these films have won prestigious awards at the most renowned international film festivals, culminating in the 2002 Oscar for Best Foreign Film for No Man’s Land by Bosnian director Danis Tanovic.
