In 2016 a fishing boat off the Icelandic coast hauled up four reels of Derevensky detektiv (The Village Detective), a Soviet-era film starring the well-known Russian actor Mikhail Zharov. The discovery led filmmaker Bill Morrison (Dawson City: Frozen Time) on a fascinating cinematic odyssey. The decayed footage is woven together with clips from Zharov’s lengthy filmography, and an entrancing score by David Lang, to tell the story of its star - and of Soviet cinema itself. Morrison creates a unique and mesmerising document, reflecting how life, history, and art intersect and endure forever on film.
