Abstract

Sergei Loznitsa, Ukrainian film director, who was born in Belorussia, is well known for his documentaries in which he simply points his camera at people and without any comment he records how they behave like idiots. Jan Čulík spoke to him at the 2019 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival about his film Austerlitz, which shows how thousands of tourists behave while visiting en masse the Sachsenhausen Nazi concentration camp. They also spoke about Loznitsa's film The Trial, constructed from period archive film footage recording one of the Stalinist show trials which took place in Russia in the 1930s. Sergei Loznitsa is now working on a new film which also uses archival film footage: it is a film recording the events around Stalin's funeral in 1953. "I would like to invite my spectators to that time so that they could feel what people then felt and see what people then saw - but with our experience of 66 years later," says Loznitsa. The interview was broadcast by the Czech cable TV station Regionalnitelevize.cz from 12th July 2019.
