Anton ginzburg
Hyperborea
Fiction expérimentale | hdv | couleur | 45'0'' | USA / Russie | 2011
Dans son film Hyperborea, Anton Ginsburg construit des points d?intersection entre la mémoire individuelle ou collective, et l?imagination. Parcourant les histoires nombreuses au sujet de la région mythique d?Hyperborea, il s?y est installé et a voyagé jusqu?aux territoires les plus lointains au Nord. Son expédition l?a conduit des des forêts du Nord Ouest Pacifique américain, aux palais abandonnés de Saint Petersburg, jusqu?aux Goulags de la Mer Blanche. Sur la trace d?anciens vestiges, forêts primaires, fossiles de mammouths et ruines, l?explorateur est accompagné par un mystérieux nuage de fumée rouge.
