Directors: Antoine Cattin, Pavel Kostomarov
For almost 7 years the director Alexey German has been making a film based on the novel of the Strugatskiy brothers “It’s Hard to Be God”. The film tells a story of a man that was sent to another planet that is very similar to Earth in the Middle Ages. He has a mission to keep an eye on things happening around him. The longstanding work of the film crew has also been observed for many years by an outsider, the director from Switzerland. For him, Russia is another planet. In his eyes the life of the great Russian director at the film set became a mirror of the Russian reality.
