Russian documentary "Froth" to be reviewed in Cinema Verite

TEHRAN, Dec. 14 (MNA) – The "Froth" is slated to be screen in the World’s Best section of the 14th Iran International Documentary Film Festival known as Cinema Verite which is scheduled to be organized totally online from December 15 to 22 in Tehran.

Directed by Ilya Povolotskya, a 33 Russian documentarian narrates customs and everyday life on the coast of the Barents Sea.

From the Barents Sea, a chill wind seems to blow constantly across a semi-deserted town at the edge of the world. Nevertheless, a little community holds out here. In a flawlessly filmed portrait of this extraordinary place, the theme linking the residents is their determination to chart their own course.

Bardak was a marine, but his garrison broke up and his comrades sought a better life elsewhere. He stayed behind among the many empty buildings that are slowly but surely being consumed by the elements. Meanwhile, Dima, a young poacher, flouts as many rules as he can, but gives friendly directions to lost tourists and reads lovingly to his little daughter. Ferryman Alexander is locked in a silent generational battle with his teenage daughter Masha; her eyes are on the outside world. Further along, a little team of ships from the Second World War turns up, and a woman steadfastly runs a weather station.

The film also has participated in the IDFA film festival and was honored at Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival in Greece.
