Ice-Hole

Ice-Hole, "Prorub"

Synopsis

Director

The film takes place during one day – the day of an orthodox baptism. On this day as a tradition many religious Russians dive into the ice cold water of the ice-hole. News channels are actively covering these events. The film characters are the Oligarch, Artist, Russian President and Drunkard. Each one of them becomes a figure for TV reports: the President is trying to find out about the future of Russian Federation from the Pike, the Artist is searching for fame, the Oligarch is trying to hide his money in the ice-hole and the Alcoholic is searching for his missing wife.

In the modern world TV has been replaced by reality itself. Viewers believe the television and reject the reality that surrounds them. In every home there is a TV-set – in which they dive into the ice-hole of virtual reality.

 

Broadcasters and reporters, heroes and commentators are all talking in verse; this lays emphasis on the absolute absurdity of the events.

 

This film is an ironical portrait of the modern world.
