Part of First Look

With Joana Preiss in person
Presented with support from the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States

France. Dir. Joana Preiss. 2011, 82 mins. DCP. 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.
