Above the Lake

The movie is based on poetry of russian poet Alexander Blok. It is not just a screen version as usual. It is a reconstruction of a cinema of the beginning of XX century, made by our contemporaries. Being poetical and philosophical reflection of a perception of Blok’s poetry, the film at the same time renders an atmosphere of legendary “Silver Age” of russian poetry.

A poor consumptive poet dreams about a meeting with the muse, but it is already impossible for him. Being immersed in mystical catalepsy, he sees her as though in reality. The film is made with the original music, written and performed by Sergey Oskolkov.
