The world as we know it has disintegrated: people drift aimlessly though a bizarre snowscape strewn with the detritus of civilisation and history. In seven metaphorical episodes, Under Electric Clouds delves into this no-man’s land, exploring the spiritual state of a disintegrating country caught between a ruined past and an elusive future. A deft, heartbreaking blend of story and parable, Aleksei German Jr.’s film won the Silver Bear for Outstanding Cinematography at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival.
