AT 5:00PM - FILM FEATURE
With Joana Preiss in person
France. Dir. Joana Preiss. 2011, 82 mins. With Preiss, Bruno Dumont.
Filmed entirely by Preiss and her then lover, Dumont, mostly in the claustrophobia of a train car on the Trans-Siberian Railway, Siberia is an intense and raw observation of a relationship’s denouement. With unflinching honesty and a Direct Cinema approach, Preiss’s documentary is a fascinating psychological exploration of love, dependency, and the bounds of romantic privacy.

I am green, SMALL, terribly cute, and YES...
I am a rubber duck.
Just look for me in Andreya's hands.
