Dalla Siberia con amore

Dalla Siberia con amore

Born in Florence, Vito Zagarriograduated in Directing from the National Film School in Rome and also studied at New York University. He teaches theory and practice of directing at Roma Tre University and has written numerous essays and critical works on film and television. As a director, he has made documentaries and features, includingLa donna della luna (1987), with Greta Scacchi; Bonus Malus (1993); and Three Days of Anarchy (2006), starring Enrico Lo Verso. He is a member of the scientific board of the Pesaro Film

The documentary follows an Italian delegation of directors, led by Olga, who wereinvited with some of their films of the “new cinema” to a festival in Siberia (Blagoveschensk). Soon, however, this “backstage” of the festival becomes a journey into a never-before-seen and surprising Russia, where folklore blends with modernity, old stars interact with young, handicapped people and life borders on death. “Autunno sull’Amur” is thus a pretext for getting to know various tender, comical, cynical and romantic characters, and a mythical Russia visited as if in a dream. An atypical, zero-budget road movie; a meta-film on cinema.
