In Russia, an introverted father and his teenage daughter live on the road in a van that contains their entire life, including the equipment for a travelling cinema: the source of their meager income. Povolotsky builds on the undeniable art of the long take, on both the scale of the imposing landscapes and the tight interior of their cramped vehicle. The nameless father and daughter rove around the extremities of their vast country, from south to north. On its margins, the pulse of independent drifters who endure and resist.
Ilya Povolotsky, born in 1987 at Izhevsk, studied Law and soon after graduation started a small production company. Directing commercial and commissioned work, he gradually shifted to developing independent film projects. His first short film Northerners was presented in competition of Krakow Film Festival and Camerimage, and was soon followed by a feature-length documentary Froth, which received a Special Mention at IDFA 2019 and numerous distinctions worldwide.
