a screening of Barzakh by Mantas Kvedaravicius tomorrow at 5pm in the Darwin TV room. Mantas is PhD student in the dept of social anthropology, this is his first feature and it’s being produced by Aki Kaurismaki. The project hasn’t reached its definitive form yet and Mantas is eager to screen his film for people who can give him feedback, so if you could make it to the screening that would be great!

Here's some more info about the documentary:

In a Chechen city recovering after the war a man disappears. As daily life goes by those in search are drawn into the world where encounters with diviners and legal advisors, with torturers and tortured, with secret prisons and mythical lakes become commonplace. When the disappeared do return in dreams, they are said to come from Barzakh – a land between the living and the dead. Documentary was filmed in Chechnya with the help of local people who managed to keep the filming secret and filmmaker relatively safe during two years of shooting (Dec 2007 – Sept 2009). Produced by Aki Kaurismaki (Sputnik OY) and Iikka Vehkalahti (YLE TV) documentary is now in the pre-final cut stage (consulting editor Timo Linnasalo). Sound, music, and color correction are in process. 72min, HD
